I was anxious about an error I made and was putting my glasses on too quickly to see the error and jammed the end of the frame into my eye. The pain was horrific. The first day and a half I felt nothing but hard pressure around the entire eye. After that I felt pain across the front of my eye. Since it happened on a Saturday, I didn't see the doctor until Monday and she diagnosed a corneal abrasion from the top of my pupil into my iris. I have been using the prescribed antibiotic ointment in my eye three times a day but the pain is still aggravated when I blink of move the eyelid.

On a Monday morning I woke up with a swollen eye, blurred vision, etc. The ophthalmologists I saw later that day sent me to a hospital because of the severity of the corneal injury and for a time a complete loss of vision. For the next three (3) days I received two antibiotics and another solution every hour, in five (5) minute increments. Day four through seven I received them every two hours. Surprisingly, the vision returned (although cloudy) to my injured eye. And then six weeks later the cloudiness dissipated and my eye stabilized.
