Ow! I poked myself in the eye... with the thin foil wrapper of a Rice Krispie treat I was eating. I had just woken up so I wasn't real coordinated, and I didn't peel the wrapper back far enough. :( The eyelid-closing reflex may have have been ill-timed and contributed to the injury.

The Interwebs say I can wait a day or so and it should be better, but if it doesn't feel better I should see an ophthalmologist immediately . That's a really great word. Ophthalmologist. I don't think I've ever needed to spell it before. I would never have guessed about the extra 'h'.

Dr. Wong is very good. I went to him a loooong time ago for an inner eye infection and he was very respectful and explained the problem to me politely. I believe his name is Shannon Wong. He is in business with his father, also an ophthalmologist.

Thanks for the recommendation. As it happens, he is the eye doctor I already see for my regular check-ups, but I was just about to ask for eye doctor recommendations, because I've had issues twice in the past with paperwork mix-ups in their front office.

Yikes! I'm so sorry. I've had eye problems in the past and it sucks. Hope everything works out.

You honestly injured yourself on a rice krispy package.
I am impressed.

Oh, and in the meantime, I believe for a scratched cornea you're supposed to keep the light out of it, ala pirate eye patch or some such thing.

I knew Rice Krispie treats were bad for you!

I'm sorry you are hurt! I want to come hug you.

I would have never guessed about the extra H either. I think we should start saying offthalmologist then.
