You know how there are some things that you can’t do, no matter how hard you try? Well, for me, it’s putting in eyedrops. I recently went to the optometrist and she asked me if I noticed that the inside of my eyes were yellow. What? No. She then told me the name of the condition, something with three or four syllables and ends in a “-tion.” Don’t quote me, I could be wrong with that. I was too busy focusing on the “yellow eyes” part.
She went on further and explained to me that it wasn’t anything serious, just a side effect from flying. Apparently, the air and being in a plane a lot causes my eyes to dry out. Of course, I’m freaking out because I have dehydrated eyeballs. There are a lot of side effects of flying frequently and I need to do everything I can do minimize the harm.
My optometrist then recommend using certain eyedrops while in the air, which would prevent my eyes from turning yellow. I immediately went straight to Target and bought some eyedrops.
I brought them along on my next trip and tried to use them. Boy, was that a disaster. I learned that I’m the worst at putting eyedrops in. After eight failed attempts, a wet forehead, and waterfalls streaming down my cheeks, I gave up.
How in the world do people do it so easily? I have terrible aim and immediately shut my eye if I know a drop is on its way down. When I got home, I was determined to put eyedrops in by myself.
… and guess what? I did it!! The bad news is that I can only do it laying down. Putting in eyedrops while standing up is nearly impossible for me. I guess I’ll just have to keep working on it and keep my fingers crossed.
Here’s another simple as a pimple crockpot recipe. I served it with broccoli cheese orzo casserole bake, but it’d be great with plain ol’ rice. I also used frozen chicken breasts and they turned out fine, so feel free to use them if that’s all you have on hand. From Stick a Fork In It.
