It's kind of my fault, kind of not. Basically, I work in the machine shop on campus, and my job, among other things, entails that I help students out with their projects. I'm a good welder, so naturally, I help people with their welding. I NEVER weld without a mask, but just standing near people when they're welding has proved enough to burn my eyes. It happened a couple months ago and it happened again last weekend.
I wish this discomfort on no one. And before everyone starts yelling at me to go to the doctor, no my eye isn't infected, and yes I do need to take better care of them because this will bite me in the ass later in life, but for now all I can do is avoid light, use eyedrops, and suck it up.
