Damaged Cornea?

Submitted by Stacey on 8/19/05 at 7:20 AM. ( sbrown@nehydro.com )


Yesterday I went to tan for the first time and was not shown where the goggles were so I went in for 5 minutes without them. Throughout the night, I could feel slightly blurred vision and my cornea seemed damaged. Is this possible after only 5 minutes of exposure?

Did you go to a DOCTOR?

Though to me it sounds unlikely that you damaged your cornea, I'm certainly no ophthalomolgist. We have no idea what solutions you were using, HOWEVER, because "were not shown where the goggles were" is inexcusable for your disregard of your own health. I understand lawyers cater to such neglect, but each of us is responsible for the situations we place ourselves into.

Uncle George,

I think Stacey is writing about a fake tan.

I would think it is similar to the burn sensation that you get from welding without mask down. Anyone you has done it before im sure has been flashed at least once. Place a slab of potato over your eye and relax awhile.

LOL Glen, why don't I see the people coming?

Between the nitwits we live with here and the ones how type in an entry on Google, you never know, do you? Still, the point is valid. What the hell did she get under the lamp without the goggles for in the first place.

you guys are a hoot

It's pretty obvious why Stacey didn't put the googles on!
EZ-TAN IS NOT FOR PEOPLE'S SKIN...........I'm still laughing.....

You should...

I start posting again, and folks like Stacy STILL think they can skip the pickle! Hahaha, seriously, though, I guess some things never change. The worst part is, theres people dumb enough to suspect that might really be a real post! Maybe next time she should just use the DP...

Brudder Bill,

are you insinuating Uncle George is dumb?

Glen, honestly?

Ummm...hahaha, no, Im not insinuating that, but I think I shouldve proof read the post last night, because thats not what I wanted to say about the post being authentic. Maybe I fried my cornea...

I'm just giving you both a hard time.

Uncle George just didn't have his goggles on, that's why he couldn't see the people coming.

I think maybe I had better quit clowning around in one of the "serious categories".

On a serious note, I do have treatment of ulcerated corneas down to an art. I can even do it in the dark with a flashlight stuck in a front pants pocket for indirect light.

no prob, Glen
