oh! my! i got sore eyes

friday night at around 10pm, gumising ako pero hindi ko masyadong maidilat ang dalawa kong mga mata, may kung anong sakit o hapdi akong nararamdam pag sinusubukan ko itong idilat, alam kong namamaga ang kaliwa kong mata sa dahilang hindi ko naman alam…

dali-dali akong nagtungo sa sala kung saan nakasabit sa pader ng aming bahay ang malaki naming salamin. doon, bumungad sa akin ang kagimbal-gimbal na katotohan…

mahapdi
mamula-mula
maluha-luha
at
nagmumuta

ganyan ang mga mata ko nung makita ko sa salamin
hindi ko alam kung anong sumpa ba tong binigay sa akin…sore eyes ba to?!…tama! sore eyes nga…shit!!!

san ko ba to nakuha?
paano ako nagkaroon nito?
nahawaan ba ako ni dennis? (officemate ko na may sore eyes.:-))

waaaaahhh?!??! panic mode na ako…

that time eh hindi pa naman ganun kalala ang sore eyes ko kaya nagawa ko pang pumasok sa trabaho. shades lang ang katapat nyan para hindi nila makita kung ano talaga ang ichura ng mata ko. pero makalipas ang ilang oras na shift, pag tingin ko ulit sa salamin eh sobrang pariwara na ang mga mata ko, muka atang makakapag-LOA(Leave of Absence) na ako nito ng wala sa oras, at yun, nangyari na nga. sa mga oras na to namumula pa din ang mga mata ko, parang wala namang bisa yung gamot na binigay sa akin,  hay naku!

sana naman di na to magtagal pa, tama na ang isang araw na umabsent ako…

shit! na sore eyes ka…lubayan mo na ako pls..

FACTS ABOUT SORE EYES FROM wikipedia.com

Conjunctivitis or Sore Eyes (also called “madras eye” in south India or “pink eye“) is an acute inflammation of the conjunctiva (the outermost layer of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids), most commonly due to an allergic reaction or an infection (usually viral, but sometimes bacterial).

Causes

Conjunctivitis is most commonly caused by viral infection, but bacterial infections, allergies, other irritants and dryness are also common etiologies for its occurrence. Both bacterial and viral infections are contagious. Commonly, conjunctival infections are passed from person-to-person, but can also spread through contaminated objects or water.

The most common cause of viral conjunctivitis is adenoviruses. Herpetic keratoconjunctivitis (caused by herpes simplex viruses) can be serious and requires treatment with acyclovir. Acute Hemorrhagic Conjunctivitis is a highly contagious disease caused by two enteroviruses, Enterovirus 70 and Coxsackievirus A24. These were first identified in an outbreak in Ghana in 1969 and have spread worldwide since then, causing several epidemics.

Diagnosis

These are done infrequently because most cases of conjunctivitis are treated empirically and (eventually) successfully, but often only after running the gamut of the common possibilities.

Swabs for bacterial culture are necessary if the history and signs suggest bacterial conjunctivitis, but there is no response to topical antibiotics. Research studies indicate that many bacteria implicated in low-grade conjunctivitis are not detected by the usual culture methods of medical microbiology labs, so negative results are common.[citation needed] Viral culture may be appropriate in epidemic case clusters. Conjunctival scrapes for cytology can be useful in detecting chlamydial and fungal infections, allergy and dysplasia, but are rarely done because of the cost and the general lack of laboratory staff experienced in handling ocular specimens. Conjunctival incisional biopsy is occasionally done when granulomatous diseases (e.g., sarcoidosis) or dysplasia are suspected

Conjunctivitis resolves in 65% of cases without treatment, within 2 – 5 days. The prescribing of antibiotics to most cases is not necessary.
