Had my corneal erosion surgery today

My cornea either erodes, or calluses form on them. Very unpleasant sensation of something in my eye.

Doc basically scraped my corneal surface off, then rinsed it, then put contact-lens bandaid on it. My eye was numbed before this.

Hurts like a mother. Followup tomorrow

1. Oh my

that sounds awful. I hate eye pain. I am sorry it hurts so much but hopefully it will be worth it.

10. I know which scene you're referring to....

Gahh! Had an abraded cornea once, I have an idea of how it hurts, but your experience sounds even worse. Feel better soon!

11. Thanks

Sadly, my first go round was to fix it, but I'm among the lucky ones where it recurrs

12. Wow, never heard of this eye problem

Can't even imagine "scraping the corneal surface off". I would think that would be mighty painful. Hope the pain subsides soon and your vision is OK.

I may ask for the small vicodin rx. It's pretty bad

17. It is amazing - in a weird sort of way - how painful a cornea can be.

I went through years of corneal abrasions before the cornea finally failed to be replaced by a cadaver cornea. It was exquisitely painful. Nothing sense has begun to get my attention.

The good news is that it feels so good when it quits hurting.
