Scratched Eyes & Picture Montage

Posted Mar 23 2011 11:34pm

I have been wearing contact lens for almost 8 years now and I wore reading glasses a few years before that.

Lately, I’ve had painful irritation everyday that started usually around late afternoon. I thought my eyes were just dry because my office job has me sitting in front of the computer all day long. So I would put moisturizing drops to help with the dryness but lately, it hasn’t been helping.

Well, I had my annual eye exam and was told my cornea were scratch. I have corneal abrasion from both eyes. Not just minor scratches, but DEEP scratches. I can’t wear contact lens for 2 weeks until it heals. I had to go find and dust off my old eye glasses so I can use it instead of my contact lens.

My optometrist thinks something went in my eye, like sand or something while I’m outdoors and I probably made it worst by scratching my eyes when it would get dry. So I tried to remember my activities the last 2 months since the irritation started. Well, we went to San Diego and spent time at the beach , we went hiking, spent an afternoon in the wild , and we met our wedding photographer during a very windy afternoon along the coast . Who knows how it could have happened, but I am doing my best to have it healed as soon as possible. My eyes just need a breather.

Wearing my glasses feels weird because the prescription isn’t as strong as my contacts. I wear my contacts from the moment I wake up to right before I go to bed, my glasses was my back-up and rarely used it. I am seeing things a little differently, it’s a blurry world out there for me.

I’m keeping my computer use to a minimum the next few days and trying to rest my eyes. 

Life is full of vibrant colors and I can’t wait to see it as such once my eyes are healed.

Last week I shared with you Part I of my favorite pictures from our engagement session and I had a few requests from friends to see more pictures, outfit details, photographer info,  location and etc.

I think the questions were all answered, but I’ll put it all on a post too to share the info. In the meantime, I’ll share with you this picture montage, it includes more pictures from that glorious day. I created this for our wedding website to share with our family and friends.

I wanted to share it with you here too.
