Just to forestall anybody else telling me not to rub too hard, let me confess that I have in fact rubbed my eyes too hard and that I have done something bizarre to the left one; the sclera seems to be somewhat wrinkled. It doesn’t hurt and it doesn’t affect my vision, but when I look to the left without moving my head it feels slightly weird, like something’s in my eye.
I have napped for three hours with a cold compress on it, and it is less swollen than it was before. I beg of you now, unless you are an actual medical doctor, don’t give me any advice or even any sympathy, because I feel like an idiot.(x-posted from the essential kit)
