so i went back to the ophthalmologist this morning. he kept telling me, 'clinically, it's improving.' almost like he was reassuring himself as much as me. then he told me i have corneal haze, gave me steroid drops, and told me to come back next week. so when we got home we looked it up, and corneal haze is scarring in the eye which usually clears up after six to twelve months, but is possibly permanent damage causing blurry vision. glamtastic!
anyway, i can see well enough to drive so i'm going back to work tomorrow.
also, when i post from the laptop, my icon is freaking jumping jesus despite unico being selected.
