I wonder if there's an app for that

bottle one: one drop two times a day in left eye
bottle two: one drop four times a day in left eye
bottle three: one drop four to six times a day in left eye but not within one hour of any of the previous drops
bottle four: one drop three times a day in right eye
bottle five: one drop four times a day in right eye
bottle six: same instructions as bottle three, but for right eye

I sure am glad this week's eye drop regimen is a lot less complicated than last week's.

What a crazy drop schedule! But it will be so worth it all, right?
Happy Thanksgiving!

that's pretty complicated.

Your Highness,

I should think with a schedule like that one of your minions could at least apply said drops for you. Then of course rub your feet afterwards after such trauma.

In all honesty I feel for you. I'm getting all blinky like just reading your post. I don't know how you do that. I would be a wreck!

Hope this is over with soon!

LOL! Gee, I do hope you can see OK.

kelly the wise said...

just mix em all up and do 6 drops at meals and bed...easy huh?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Totally worth it, Berni! It's so nice to have that bug-splattered windshield removed from my eyes.
Hope your Thanksgiving is very foody.

Less so than last week, though, Mr Anchovy. And next week will be practically idiot-proof.

The schedule is not so bad when it's the primary focus of your day, Sean. Throw travelling or a real job into the mix, though, and I would be utterly discombobulated. So being a lazy agoraphobe for a few more weeks is actually just what the doctor ordered.

I can actually see remarkably well, Leazwell. When I am not dripping drops into my eyes, of course.

And this coming from a guy who has had eye surgery too, Kelly. I am surprised that thing didn't fall right out of your skull!

Apple should supply eye drops to public for those 'There's an app for that' commercials as they make me want to scratch out my eye balls. I guess once they're out, I wouldn't need the drops anyone...

I hope you're nearing the end of the schedule! Sounds daunting. At least you know the results will pay off in the end!

kelly said...

oh...I never said I would do that...especially since I live with a pharmacist

justrun said...

Hopefully there is no wine restriction with these drops. Lordy!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Please don't scratch out your eyeballs, Al. Don't give Apple the satisfaction of knowing they have won!

I am telling on you, Kelly, councelling people to commit poor pharmaceutical hygiene...

No wine restriction that they told me about, Justun, but consumption does make it hard to remember the finer points of the schedule.

Has your brain been smushified yet?
That eyedrop schedule kind of made my soul turn cold for a bit. But it shall be worth it, no?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

My brain has been smushified for decades, BAP. But hopefully with my new laser beam eyesight, it will be less noticeable.

Gifted Typist said...

hahahah, good thing you have the new lenses because reading those tiny directions on bottles is a bitch

Barbara Bruederlin said...

A phenomenon which has always perplexed me, Gifted.

I'd have everything so screwed up that it would be far from funny.

Martha keeps my meds and vitamins in one of those compartmentalized day-by-day things. My problem? I forget five minutes after I take something whether or not I took it. A common problem among the elderly stupid.

But you seem to be doing ok, so hang in there!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I think I need to borrow your Martha, Charlie. Ask her if she would like to see snow in October.

Charlie said...

Martha said no. An emphatic no. Any temp below 95 F and she breaks out in gigungus goosebumps. Wears a jacket in the frozen food aisles at the grocery, even in the summer. ALWAYS carries a sweater, "just in case."

This is a woman who grew up in Minnesota. Go figger.
