So, no biggie. I figured it would come out shortly. It didn't. I flushed my eye out with water, put a warm washcloth on my eye for a few hours, and had people look inside it. Nothing. No better. I figured the redness was from irritation caused my my rubbing it and the washcloth.
Well, midafternoon it didn't look good and it still felt like there was an object in it. I figured it might be a scratch.
My friend has been sick for a while, so she needed to stop my the clinic on campus. I went with her, hoping to get checked out too. They couldn't get us in until tomorrow (today). This wasn't going to work. I couldn't open my eye, and my eyelid was puffing by the minute.
So, we went to a walk-in clinic in town. She checked for scratches or any small pieces of something in my eye. Absolutely nothing. Yet, there was clearly something wrong. She gave me antibacterial eye drops and told me she was going to treat it as Conjunctivitis.
