Woke up Monday morning with a very painful and extremely red right eye!
Spent 2 days trying to get a bloody appointment with Boots optician… they don’t even answer the phone!!! … and gave up this afternoon and went to a local small opticians… and glad I did!
Turns out I have conjunctivitis in my eye… and what I didn’t know is there are various types of conjunctivitis. There’s infectious and viral, one caused by a trauma to the eye and an auto immune type which is what I have. So yes, my old pal MS is the culprit.
Have to get eye drops from the GP… the optician has written a letter. Anyway there you go… another damned MS thing… and as with all things MS, it’s made me feel really rotten. That half-dead feeling that you all know so well…
AND what’s interesting is she told me that opticians at Boots and the other high street opticians are not qualified enough to diagnose eye conditions… they would have sent me to Moorfields eye hospital.
You should see my eye. The whole white area is bright red!!! Honestly I look like something out of a horror film!
Hope all are well,
