For the past 2 months I have been struggling on and off with a weepy left eye. Living in Okieland, I assumed it was allergies and struggled on, or took the occasional allergy pill.
Finally after having to wear my specs for a couple of days, I went to see my Optician yesterday. Well after ascertaining there was no redness associated with allergic reaction, he spotted a bit of fuzz under my lower eyelid.
After a numbing drop, he removed the offending fuzz. He thinks it had been there awhile and it was easily seen on the tip of his finger, so probably felt huge to my eye! Probably my eye was trying to wash it out, but never produced enough tears to do it.
Well since it was removed, no more weepy eye all day! I just can't believe I couldn't tell, especially as I wear contact lenses. Truly bizarre to think I was carrying around a friendly fuzzy bit in my left eye all that time - can't say I miss it though!
