life as a blind ish person is not easy. i have red eye. i woke up saturday morning and just had it. my left eye was all itchy and watery and generally annoying. i had to not wear contact lenses all weekend. now any normal person would pop on their pair of glasses except i haven't worn mine in a long time. in fact i haven't seen mine in a long time. turns out in the process of moving i had managed to crack one side and then not bothered to replace it.

i spent my saturday in bed. it was easier than you'd think. i woke up every now and then to put eye drops in my eye. very soothing they be. i even made it down the stairs to the kitchen. it helps when you know where everything is. then i wandered over to my couch where i listened to the tv for a bit. turns out my hand knows the remote like the back of my hand.

sunday though i couldn't survive. around late afternoon i had to come up with a temporary solution. some way to be able to watch 'desperate housewives' and 'brothers and sisters' later that night. i popped my contact lens into the one good eye and then managed to locate my pair of cracked glasses. then i was magically able to get the cracked piece to fall out completely so that one side was now completely glass free, all this without injuring myself. then i was able to wear my glasses because due to the fact that the side of the glass that still worked was also the side of my infected eye. at this point i was wearing glasses on one side and contacts on the other except my glasses were so old the power was kinda low. so i could sorta see but not very well. i tried watching tv through my new invention but it was very uncomfortable. i eventually took my glasses off and watched tv with one eye shut. it's harder than you think. i wished i was one of those people who used eye masks to sleep in. that way i could have just cut one eye out and been like a pirate. i also thought about putting cotton over one eye and taping it down with my 'finding nemo' band aids. after all this thinking i got tired. also it had been more than 24 hours since the infection had started. i decided my eye didn't look as red as it did yesterday so i went ahead and put my contact lenses back in. as we speak it's not burning or anything so yay.

i know you're all dying to come up with mean one liners and horrible punny titles to this post. go right ahead. i'm looking at you shenoy saar.

Looks like you need some healing eye-candy. I'll send u my pic ;)

Although a potential side-effect is that you might lose vision in the good eye also. Eye-popping personality, that's me. Yep.

Arrite, time for shut-eye. Eye-eye cap'n.

I once got an ulcer in my eye because I thought it would be fun to not clean my lens for a really long time. It was wonderful to look at that white dot in my iris though. Like Chandrayaan pictures it be.

One Eyed Pri?? does it sound good??

narendra shenoy said...

Hahaha! And also commisserations. Red eye can be a pain. Just this saturday, both my eyes were red, though the missus thinks it was because of the whisky.

And if you're unable to wear glasses, you could take a math course to improve division.

hey i found ur blog through someone else's and i really liked it. :)
apparently my eyes are rejecting lenses all of a sudden and i've been condemned to wearing glasses for the next few months... :(
so i have full sympathy! :)

rads said...

yep! it's worse being one-eyed than generally blind. Seriously, not being callous or cruel at all. It's the frikkin 3-d that throws off the brain and creates migraines.

neways, looks like u feeling better writing a post and all.. missed you :)

o btw, I channeled some of my soppy stories to a new blog. Come visit me?

shadow_sun: see a doctor you say? reckless you say? why you sound just like my mother. p.s. my generation officially banned the word reckless in the year 2000.

aparna: no. it sounds terrible. plus what would i do with my infini curl extra dark waterproof extendalash mascara?

shenoy saar: poor mrs. shennoy. she gets to listen to drunk mr.shenoy jokes as well. something tells me they're way worse than sober mr.shenoy jokes. at the risk of being shot i have to say your son must get his sense of humour from his mother.

sneha puttu: welcome. kindly take yuver seat.

rads: of course we will.

prashanti: yes i should have.

the great gujju: i watched dostana. i have no comment. yet. gahhh i don't know. i'm just so mad. there's just way too many stupid people in this world. way too many.
