Out of commission for awhile

As some of you may know for the past few years I have been having problems with my eyes. I have dry eyes which is the stem of all the problems. It affects my contacts, but my eyes are so bad that glasses at this point would not work, they would be to thick and look like coke bottles. Plus I can see better with my contacts when I don't have any problems. On Tuesday of last week somehow I scratched my left contact, wore it all day and messed up my eye. When I took it out it ripped, I really did a number on it. Tried using my old left contact which was just as bad. Since my eyes are so bad they have to special order my contacts which takes 2 weeks I called on Wednesday. I have a long time to go. I am reduced to wearing an eye patch because I can not see out of the left eye. Wish me luck, it will be a challenge at work. I have compromised depth perception now. It's amazing how this can change your whole life, even if it is just for 2 weeks. I don't think I will ever take my eyes for granted again. Will be back when I can navagate pictures and blogging better.
Peace, love♥, and crochet...

Hey, love your blog! I work at an eye doctor's and we recommend Systane Ultra eye drops to our patients with dry eyes. It's safe for contacts and you can use it every day.
Try that, it really helps. I have been using it for a year.
Hope your eyes get better soon!
