Doctor's Orders

I mentioned in my post yesterday that I had an eye infection. This seems to be a recurring theme in my life lately. My eyes burn with my contacts in, burn when I take them out, are light sensitive and really watery. My wonderful boss made me an appointment for this morning with her eye doctor. He was the cutest old man and really seemed to know what he was talking about, a great quality for an eye Doctor, (yes both cute and smart). He put some iodine in my eyes and said it looked like someone threw darts at my eyes, forgot the medical terminology. Apparently I am not changing my contacts every two weeks, I was trying to stretch them out so I wouldn't have to buy them as often and I could spend more money on nail polish, ha ha, not kidding. I've been wearing contacts for half my life, and glasses since I was 8. I thought I knew how to work the system and take care of my eyes. Guess I was wrong and now the doctor said I can't wear contacts for about a week. Really? A week? I hate wearing glasses, they never stay on my nose comfortably, they aren't as clear as contacts, I feel like I am the nerd from 4th grade again and the worst part...trying to wear sunglasses! For now this is what I will have to do while I spend my lunches outside enjoying the 85 degree weather here at the beach. Don't make fun ;)

I'm thinking about getting Laser Eye Surgery...
Any suggestions? Recommendations for the LA area?

My husband can't wear contacts either because they damaged his eyes. Good thing he looks handsome in his glasses! I know he'd love to get Lasik one day. Hope your eyes get better soon!
