Okay so I always have eye issues, just with eye itching, throbbing, pain, etc.



Yeah, I'm going to talk to a doctor.



Anyway this morning my eye was SUPER itchy. I kept rubbing at it. It was the part under my eye. Where my bags are :lol:



Eventually a tiny little crusty thing came out, like a dark, round ball the size of a grain of salt. And a weird eye booger. Or whatever you call them. And a bit of blood.
I went to the mirror to look and there was no more blood. My eye is still having trouble focusing and is throbbing.



WTF?

That would scare the crap out of me. I am like way protective of my eyes because I feel like it's the most sensitive part and I'm all afraid that the tiniest thing would make me go blind. Irrational, I know. :oops:

Maybe the crusty ball thing scratched your eye, or the inner lid and that's what the blood is from.

No I'm the same way. And I freak out from like, an eyelash, even. So the blood scared me so bad. But it wasn't actively bleeding so IDK :?

Yeah, that's what I figured. Wouldn't that explain why my eye is still hurting, too? If it got scratched?

Probably. It usually heals itself, but I'd be wary of infection. I love contacts, but hate wearing them because my eyes get dry so easy and this happens to me all the time.

Omg that seriously made me cringe.



I would call an eye doctor now and make an appointment. Let them know on the phone what issues you have so they can try to get you in soon and also to make sure that doctor is qualified for your issues. My grandfather had something weird happen to his eye once (I forget what) and when he went to the eye doctor it ended up it wasn't the right kind of doctor for the problem.



Don't mess around with eye issues though. Dh has a lot of irritation with his eyes and his doctor said there is something wrong with the way his eyes are shaped and the way they connect in his head. He's actually at risk of having them detach.

Yikes. I don't have contacts or glasses ,but if I needed them, I'd have to get glasses. Stuff in my eyes just freaks me out. Watching DH put in his contacts freaks me out, too :lol:
Would it be stupid to put eye drops in? I did that earlier, too, when I could barely open it.

I don't think it would be stupid. It will lubricate and rinse the eye out.




and WOW to eyeball detaching. That's scary and creepy all rolled into one.

I know, when he told me that about two years ago after his eye exam I was ffeaking out. But they wouldn't like... Fall out or anything. But something about the way the attach at the back of the eyeball is wrong and could come undone which would make him blind. The doctor gave him some warning signs to look for bc if they catch it in time they can do surgery to stop it or something. His eyesight is horrible anyway. Like when he wears glasses they are super thick, he hates them. His contact prescription is - 9.
