A bit of advice

Post by MasonJ19 »

Be very careful when messing with uv bulbs! I had the worst night of my life last night with my eyes!! I woke up at 2.00am in a lot of pain! I couldn't open my eyes when I did the light wpuld just blind me and causw me more pain. My pupils were like grinding at my eye lids lol. Even this morning I'm writing this with one eye only and my phone screen brightness right down otherwise the pain starts again!!

How strange the thread just reset!
Not to bad now thanks, still definitely sore and bit sensitive to bright light also I was just struggling to read that yellow sign on the pm's stand thing during his road map lol. But apparently thats normal for a couple days while the corneal repairs itself. Otherwise it's just good example of what not to do with our uv sterilizers lol

Sounds similar to arc eye (weld flash) if you're suffering with anything like that you have my sympathies.

If it Arc eyes you can try putting wet cool tea bags on them for 5 mins should help with that.
