I had an eye infection for about one day, but yesterday at 3 am I noticed that there was white in front of it. I went to the emergency room as soon as I could, 8am, they let me wait until 7pm. Turned out it was exactly in front of my pupil and the infection which was extremely aggressive, had gone inside of my eye. Every minute counted. It being in/in front of my pupil means that the scarring which will occur, will permanently damage my eye, I will be lucky to get 10% of my vision back (rn I see extremely vague silhouettes based upon light because the infection is still in my pupil.) Just extremely bad judgement and luck. I’ll have to stop wearing contacts, get glasses. I can’t risk my other eye. So its the end of an era. Alas, I am getting tinted blue sunglasses like johnny deppShit... what happened ?

Wouldn't be surprised if this happened in Canada. The ER departments there are diarrhea, from my experience. In one case, an issue I had resolved itself by the time my turn came up...I'd be pretty apoplectic, to put it mildly, with the emergency room not giving me a once over before making me wait that long with what turned out to be devastatingly serious ailment (I don't know what the check in process was like for you, but I've been to the emergency room/urgent care a lot in the last few years and some are smarter than others about how they prioritize people). Anyway, I'm sorry this happened and hope you're able to recover what you can.
Been able to read a (huge) word again yesterday for the first time.
Indeed! We always keep moving forward, brother. We face challenges and we overcome them, that's what makes us, us.Good to know, and hopefully the ones from the optician make even more of a difference. Got to keep going forward!
Sorry for the complaining, but I have to say it’s good just sharing this.
