Keeping an Eye Closed for Conjunctivitis

Ulcers and Pus.
(A real photograph would have been worse.)
  1. Yes, it hurts.
  2. Yes, I have to keep the rotten eye closed.
  3. Yes, it is infectious.
  4. Yes, I have antibiotics cream and eyedrops.
  5. Yes, it is difficult to do your daily chores with just 1 eye.
  6. I believe it is from wearing contact lenses.
See you all, with two eyes, next week. Hopefully.


  1. Oh noooooo! I hope it goes away soon.

    Be thankful it's not a corneal ulcer. I got one TWICE from contacts and it is the most painful thing I've ever experienced.

    On the bright side, you can now be a one-eyed pirate. Arrrrr! ;-)

  2. Hi sweetie!
    I hope your antibiotics work and you get better very soon ;-)

  3. Oh poor you! I had it once, and it is not nice at all! You will also run the risk at looking like you are winking at strange men! Hope it is better soon! Suzie xxx

  4. oh, darling! I know what you mean! I am fighting with it since last Summer. I gaves me a very nasty lacrimation! My phisician keeps giving me drops!
    Get well soon!

  5. Oh you poor thing! I hope your medicine works quickly and that you feel better soon ~ Take good care of yourself :O) xx

  6. You've got contact lense trouble!
    Oh no! I put on glasses so no trouble. But my daughter wears contact,so she has to see a doctor once a week.
    Keep stay at home,OK? :))
    Soon get well!!

  7. oh no! poor you! *hugs* nothing worse than problems with your eyes... I can't stand contacts so keep with the coak bottle lenses in my glasses.. hope it clears up soon.

  8. That looks icky! I hope it feels all better soon. A hurty eyeball is No Fun.

  9. Oh my dear, that hurts.
    Take enough rest and let Fluffy and your husband spoil you a bit.
    Be careful with only one eye to go outside ... I fell and had to go to hospital to sew my lip ... so don't make it any worser.
    Take car ! Hasn't the postman arrived to chear you up ?

  10. Ouch, you poor thing. When I used to wear contact lenses, I got it a couple of times as well. Not very pleasant at all. I hope the medicines will clear it up quickly so that you can get back to normal. Hug to you xx

  11. Poor Juanita - get well soon!

  12. Uck, I'm sorry, that looks terrible!

    Have you considered laser eye surgery? Matt got it done and it was the best money he ever spent.. no more contacts and no more hassle! His eyes are better than mine now!

    Let me know if you want more info, the first appointment to see if you are a good candidate for the surgery is free.

  13. OMG, you poor thing! I hope you get well soon!

  14. Oh dear that's quite a look! Perhaps you could pretend to be a pirate this week? Paint it black and find a scarf for your head.

  15. Poor poor you. I hope its not too painful and I hope it soon goes away. xxx

  16. oh dear - i'm glad you posted a drawing not a photo!
    i have to say i'm a norty girl and wander around in a fuzzy haze with neither my glasses or contacts on.
    i'm pretty sure tea,biscuits and cakes and chocolates cure conjunctivitus.

  17. Awwwwwwh I hope you feel better :( It looks so painful, can't imagine how much pain you're in *hugs* hope your Mr & kitty is looking after you well :)


  18. Poor Juanita! I also had this from contacts once - contacts are not that harmless as we think after all. I hope you are now feeling better! I know it is hard to be sick and not fully 'operational'! Big hug for you

    exceedingly transmittable. Allergic and chemical pink eye are non-contagious. There are many symptoms which include reddish eyes, eye lid inflammation,
