Eye problems: It would be difficult for you to see an eye specialist today so you must have someone drive you to the nearest Emergency facility. After you have been seen your eye will be evaluated and treated or the Emergency team will get you to an eye doctor immediately. Hope all goes well - I have been through this some time ago and am doing OK.
