I have been wearing contact lens for almost 8 years now and I wore reading glasses a few years before that.
Lately, I’ve had painful irritation everyday that started usually around late afternoon. I thought my eyes were just dry because my office job has me sitting in front of the computer all day long. So I would put moisturizing drops to help with the dryness but lately, it hasn’t been helping.
Well, I had my annual eye exam and was told my cornea were scratch. I have corneal abrasion from both eyes. Not just minor scratches, but DEEP scratches. I can’t wear contact lens for 2 weeks until it heals. I had to go find and dust off my old eye glasses so I can use it instead of my contact lens.
My optometrist thinks something went in my eye, like sand or something while I’m outdoors and I probably made it worst by scratching my eyes when it would get dry. So I tried to remember my activities the last 2 months since the irritation started. Well, we went to San Diego and spent time at the beach, we went hiking, spent an afternoon in the wild, and we met our wedding photographer during a very windy afternoon along the coast. Who knows how it could have happened, but I am doing my best to have it healed as soon as possible. My eyes just need a breather.
Wearing my glasses feels weird because the prescription isn’t as strong as my contacts. I wear my contacts from the moment I wake up to right before I go to bed, my glasses was my back-up and rarely used it. I am seeing things a little differently, it’s a blurry world out there for me.
I’m keeping my computer use to a minimum the next few days and trying to rest my eyes.
Life is full of vibrant colors and I can’t wait to see it as such once my eyes are healed.
Last week I shared with you Part I of my favorite pictures from our engagement session and I had a few requests from friends to see more pictures, outfit details, photographer info, location and etc.
I think the questions were all answered, but I’ll put it all on a post too to share the info. In the meantime, I’ll share with you this picture montage, it includes more pictures from that glorious day. I created this for our wedding website to share with our family and friends.
I wanted to share it with you here too.
