My Cornea Hates Me.
Maybe a little bit of dust got trapped underneath my eyelid two nights ago? Maybe I flicked toothpaste into my eye? Maybe there are eyeball gnomes that go in while I sleep and chip away at my precious cornea? Whatever the cause, I woke up on Monday morning with my eye halfway to "complete mess," and it completed the transition over the course of the day yesterday.
Not that the Dexcom is any use to me today. My eye was so painful this morning that I popped a few Tylenol to help alleviate the swelling. They aren't kidding about that whole "Tylenol chews up and spits out your Dexcom readings:"
Why does this eye injury keep recurring? If you've had a corneal abrasion and you have tips on keeping it quiet and soothed, I would love to hear them. (I currently use Muro 128 and those Refresh eyedrops when the weather outside is dry.) Because if this injury continues to lash (ha?) out every few months, I'm going to look into glass eyeballs.
