As a many times a day viewer of the RSD site, I posted the following there, but I also wanted to take advantage of all the erudition present over here, which I have just now started to avail myself.
In a script I'm currently working on, I introduce one of the leads, who is bi polar and is in the midst of a hallacinatory peak, trampling through the streets like Robert Lowell used to do thinking he was Jesus, as "...a fading beauty with an etherial quality. Except her eyes. They burn."
Oh the irony. The intense burning has recently spread to my eyes.
I went yesterday, Saturday, and had my eyes checked out by my optomologist. As expected, all the structural parts are fine. It's just the small fiber nerves, now activated. After giving my the yellow anesthetic drops though, my eyes were fine, the burning abated. It lasted until just now, about a day in total.
I've looked up that using these drops every day is a no go, due to their causing cornea damage with excessive use. But my eyes are burnin' up. Is any aware just how often I can use these drops without causing further damage? What would be the period of time needed between using the anesthetic drops? I'm not to hopeful here.
So what are the possible alternitives available to the anesthetic drops used by my doctor? What else is there that numbs my eyes, which I could use in their place, so that I wouldn't cause even more damage? Has any with burning eyes found anything to help lower the flame?
Oh, I'm already on nearly every oral medication already.
