Eye Stye


I've been trapped indoors for a few days now because of the stye on my left eye. It's itchy and hurts most of the time.

A stye is an inflamed oil gland on the edge of your eyelid, where the lash meets the lid. It appears as a red, swollen bump that looks like a pimple. It is tender, especially to the touch.
I'm not entirely sure if this is caused by the dirt that got caught in my eye or it could be something that I ate that I'm allergic to.

The doctor gave me two oral medications and an eye ointment. I was a bit stumped because the meds cost me Php1,500 that's ouch for my wallet! I need to apply hot compress on my eye every now and then to relieve the pain. He also advised me not to use the computer and sleep early until my eye gets better. Yeah right! As if that is possible with everything that I have to do now.

I almost forgot, the doctor also checked my vision. Of course my left eye's vision is blurred because of this red stye. Surprisingly my right eye's vision is blurred too. Oh no! I might have to wear glasses soon! I'm certainly not looking forward to that.

I'll have my eyes checked next week once the stye clears so that I'll know once and for all if I'll need glasses. I guess I have to keep my fingers crossed until then.

Take care of your eyes everyone! It's not fun to have this pimple looking yucky thing on your eye.

Blessed be.
