Eye Problems

Since early yesterday morning, my right eye has been swimming in a sea of blood vessels. As my better half said this morning: "That's one angry eye!" So, thinking I might be suffering from some heretofore unknown allergy, or that I might have somehow gotten a corneal abrasion, I went to my primary care physician to have it checked out. He ruled out corneal abrasion, conjunctivitis, and any of the other usual suspects. And since the eye also experience a sharp pain anytime it was exposed to bright lights, he sent me off to an ophtalmologist immediately. So I went. The diagnosis after a short examination: a very small corneal ulcer. Treatable with antibiotic drops. Which I'm doing. We'll see how it turns out. Not something I'd wish on anyone.

Thanks, eric and lamom. After just a half day of antibiotic drops, I'm 200% better. So, all appears good. Just the price of aging, I guess!
