I went to my eye doctor this morning for a contact lens fitting (they fit, and I have 20/20 vision with them, so that’s good), and to have my tear ducts flushed out. They get clogged. I know, I’m a freak.
Anyway. I’ve been noticing recently that both of my eyes are watering more than they should be, which was the precursor to my right tear duct getting infected 7 years ago.
So this morning, the eye doctor tried to flush out both eyes using a syringe and needle and saline solution, while his assistant plugged the top opening of the tear duct shut with a Q-tip. He did about 4-5 flushes on the right side, and maybe 3 on the left. We’re not sure if it worked, but I’ll know in a day or two.
The plan is that, if it worked, great, I’ll just go back for my checkup in a year. If it didn’t work, I’ll have to go see an eye surgeon so that they can force out the obstruction, whatever it is, with a wire.
But an infected tear duct hurrrrrts. So if this didn’t work, I guess I’ll proceed as directed.
Why can’t I have normal problems? When my warranty runs out, Jerry’s going to trade me in, I just know it.
