I'm Edemic

or so I was told my my eye doctor as he rattled off horrendously long words to the nurse about my diagnosis.
I made them write down the official diagnosis because of course I knew I would want to blog about it. Here it is... keratitis corneal edema.
Yeah, I didn't know what that meant either. Apparently google or wikipedia are not on the up and up on it as well. Basically, my eyes have a build-up of white blood cells that could erupt and become infected. This means my eyes need time to oxygenate and heal; with the help of a steroid. This also means that I am not allowed to wear my contacts for 5-7 days. Hence the new glasses. Honestly now people, what do you think?

Ugh. Let me say I hate picking out glasses.

They look good on you, S. They compliment your features well. Honestly. :o)

Hope your eyes get better soon so you can wear your contacts again.

Love and hugs,

Diane
