Really sore eye, blabla, ended up at my usual place via the GP, I apparently have a corneal ulcer.
Now, she reckons it's because I have dry eyes and this means I can't wear extended wear lenses any more. I've been wearing them for at least 10 years, so I'm not sure what's changed now. The thing is, I really really really want to be able to leave the lenses in at least some of the time. I can't stand glasses, and they make it extremely difficult to ride the way I want to, but worst of all if I want to do a bikepacking trip or 24 hour race or even just normal camping, having to fart about with contact lenses is going to really make it next to impossible.
So, does one ulcer mean I'm off the lenses forever? She said my eyes are very dry, but I have had lingering cold and illness for 10 odd days, I don't think they are normally particularly dry.
