Anyone else ever had a bacterial infection in both corneas? How long after getting the medicated eye drops does it take for this crap to go away?

Sweet Chocolate Jesus. This is one of the most miserable damned experiences in recent memory. If Bob Dole sits around in the dark and doesn't try to focus on anything, it's reduced to feeling like the eyes are full of sand. Just the light from the laptop screen is painful and Bob Dole can only look at it for 10 second periods before the eyes start watering and have to be closed. Sunlight? Forgeddaboutit.

Tip: Do not wear those nifty "extended wear" contact lenses for 5 months without cleaning/changing them.

Ouch.

Takes a couple of days of drops before you feel normal again Bob. Never ever use extended wear contact lenses. Ever.

A couple of days? Crap. Bob Dole hoped he would wake up better this morning... The prescriotion drops are only for 4 days.

Bob Dole has been wearing them for years without any adverse effects. Hell, Bob Dole used to wear the regular soft lenses for 3-4 months at a time.

The eye dude gave Bob Dole a pair of the new Acuvue Oasys lenses yesterday. When the needles currently in Bob Dole's eyes dissolve, we'll see how those work.

If nothing else, this whole incident motivated Bob Dole to go ahead and buy a new pair of eyeglasses to replace the 8 year-old pair missing an earpiece.

Oddly enough, the eye dude didn't mention that.

Thanks!

You sure it isn't a yeast infection from looking at porn on the internet?

Bob Dole knew it was a bad idea to take Gaz off ignore.

Actually, this crap has been going on for two weeks and yesterday Bob Dole finally decided it wasn't going away on its own. The eye dude actually said, "Good lord...how have you been functioning?" (To which Bob Dole replied, "Not very well.")

Bob Dole is fairly certain he said "bacterial" and not "fungal."

No, no. He probably got a nipple in his eye at a titty bar.

I hope Bob Dole’s eyes get better soon.

See? [heh, just could not help it, Bob] I can be civilized.

By extended wear, are you literally wearing them overnight? Bad idea! Sure they say that's what they are designed for, but think it thru, you've got a tiny piece of synthetic plastic in your eye. Does that really sound like a good idea?

I've been trying contacts...again. My eyes just do not cooperate. I tried Dailies, which are ok. I tried Oasys, which are ok, better than any other 2-4 week disposable I've tried. I also tried the new astigmatism contacts, and they were brutal!

I think Bob Dole will like the Oasys. Not to panic you or anything, but my wife went thru a similar experience. She was told a couple days and you'll be better. Two weeks later, she was finally able to wear her contacts agaon. Good Luck!

I don't think that's possible because a titty bar is not a place he frequents. I bought Bob Dole his first dance for his 39th birthday a couple years ago.

He told you that, huh?

And you believed it?

He also told me he's only allowed to eat loin when he stayed at my house.

Sounds similar to what I went through when I put in too much chlorine in my pool last summer. That was very, very bad. And very, very dumb on my part.

I'm still wary of contact lenses. That whole process is unnatural. It's eye sodomy. Give me good old glasses that have been proven technology since about 1650.

Viagra doesn't protect you from eye infections?
Oh well, at least you'll have a raging stiffy...

Hope you feel better soon :)

When I was in high school I accidentally poked myself in the eye with an icepick requiring 5 internal and 4 external stitches on my eyeball just below the retina. Very lucky to still have vision. I had to wear an eyepatch with little pinholes in it for 8 weeks because my eye was so sensitive to light. Had to take eyedrops every 15 minutes of the day that burned like fire. The stitches scratched against the inside of my eyelid when I tried to sleep, especially during REM sleep, waking me up constantly. The headaches were unbearable. There's nothing quite like seeing blood drip out of your own eyeball.

I feel your pain friend............

Bob Dole isn't in any rush to get the contacts back in. Got a new pair of regular eyeglasses yesterday afternoon.

It sure would be nice to watch television without wearing sunglasses and perhaps be able to drive.
