Have you had them? Pay attention! Floaters, not pies! I've heard of them but never really experienced the little jellyness that hits your peepers at about 3:30 in the afternoon. I drive home picking and poking and delving into my eyes at stop lights. Once home, I'm feeling better but then back on the PC and I'm wiping little jelly goobers and smearing my mascara.
What on earth causes the buggars?
Apparently the causes are:
- Too much time on the computer (DUH)
- Fluorescent light (work in it!)
- Smoking (I know . .shuddup . .but I'm actually smoking LESS because I'm not drinking)
- Lack of sleep (more DUH)
Jesus I should be a fucking doctor! I could have told you that! Tonight, my eyes are positively sore and unfocussed and I'm only 20% through catching up on posts.
What really pisses me off is the fact that I use spreadsheets created by others that have such tiny type and when you enlarge them, they just don't make sense because navigating the things is tantamount to Magellan rounding Cape Horn so I've spent the entire day 'squinting' at my computer screen at about 5pt type and entering tender stats . . Oh Hai!I work for the Government, perhaps some OH&S leave is called for.
So . .apologies to those I don't visit but I feel like I'm looking through bottle bottom glasses with sticky eyelashes, which peturbs me even more given that I was gifted some lovely Chanel mascara for Christms which ends up wiped across my cheeks by the time I arrive home. A couple of days R & R and I'll be back on board. Then again, maybe I'll just hit the Visine and cross my fingers or my eyes.
