It began as any other day.
I awoke and stumbled to the bathroom to put my contacts in my eyes.
This was the offender!Do not buy this stuff unless you are SURE what you are doing. It is sold right beside the regular disinfecting solutions in most stores.If you or someone in your family wears contacts you need to know THIS. It also comes in generic packaging, so be VERY careful what you buy.
I have worn contact lens for umpteen years.
When I went to purchase a new bottle of disinfecting solution the store was out of my brand but had a generic solution (Equate) next to the empty spot. I saw that it was for my type of contact lens, and purchased it. Little did I know that this was not the generic equivalent to what I normally buy, instead it is a very dangerous solution which should never be used without adhering to the specific instructions for it.
I have a chemical burn on my eye as a result of this product. I later found (online) that many consumers have sustained injuries from this product, much in the same manner as I have. My eye will be alright (I think). The past 24 hours have been very painful, but I am feeling better now. I will use prescription meds on my eye for a week as it heals.
I want all my Bloggy friends and your families to be aware of this.
