... for a long while I hope.
I spent all day at the clinic run by the New York Eye and Ear Hospital on 14th street today. I spent most of the day waiting in crowded waiting rooms. I'm glad I waited because it turned out that I didn't have an eye infection at all. I had a tiny metal splinter in my eye. The eye doctor and a resident took it out in about 2 seconds. They gave me a thorough exam, and then another round of antibiotics. They said it should start to feel better by Saturday or Sunday, and all cleared up by the end of next week with no damage.
I hope this will be the last round of eye-drops and ointments, and the last visit to have my eye manhandled and poked for a long long time.
