Not necessarily.  You wake up at 1am, you're a half-asleep mess with your eyes screaming in pain, bumbling around trying to find this shiat to just make the hurting stop... yeah it could happen.  Dry eye pain is frickin' intense, combined with the groggies...

I was going to guess it was a casualty of 4/20 celebrations.  Too high, reach for some eye drops, miss. Your friends are laughing at your ass all the way to next year's celebrations.

Then I saw it was two days ago.

Pfft, this is nothing. I once superglued my eyes shut whilst building an old-school Space Marine Rhino kit during a deployment. The battalion surgeon laughed and laughed before telling me about all the medical uses of cyanoacrylate, but I was too busy crying to laugh

As a reminder: Never keep small bottles of medical solutions next to small bottles of non-medical solutions.

Better yet: Keep eye-related paraphernalia away from everything else. so when you blindly reach for it you know what you are getting.

That poor woman.  I was fishing around in my bathroom medicine cabinet a  few weeks ago and found a bottle of nail glue right next to my contact lens case. I had no idea how it got there until I went to put  it away in my nail  art tackle box and found a bottle of rewetting solution. (!!!)  The bottles looked so amazingly similar that I tossed the nail glue to prevent any future accidents. I def gave myself a horrible little shudder imaging how badly *that* could have gone.

I just watched 15 seconds of muted video of 2 news anchors doing a damn good job of trying not to laugh out loud. That's all I needed to see.

Make all the excuses you want but this is extremely stupid. Yes, I have done stupid things in my time too, but I'd never argue otherwise.

It depends on the lens. It's a good idea to take them out, but I used to buy lenses specifically made for continuous wear for up to 30 days at a time. I'm super near sighted and just prefer being able to open my eyes in the morning and see properly, like a normal person probably does.

Anyone see that Spalding Gray movie about his eye surgery? There was an interview in that with someone who had this same thing happen.

I think she said she just had to leave it alone and eventually the glue broke off, though her eyelashes were all glued together for a long time.

Got it, I'm not up on contacts, but that's what I remember hearing. My wife was blind as a bat as well... near sighted, lazy eye, and stigmatism IIRC. She would literally need new lens prescriptions every year... that and the eye drops/new glasses, contacts, that was getting expensive. We did some homework, waited a while until the procedures had been proven and she went and had Lasic eye surgery; she had 20/20 vision for years after, but now needs glasses again. Still, her unaided vision is far better than it was, and doesn't deteriorate as quickly.
I know it isn't the same for everyone, but you might want to see if you are a candidate.
I highly recommend skipping the super glue treatment though.

It easily replaces stitches. Hold the clean skin together tight, and lay a thin film down that you use a Q-tip or something to quickly smooth out. It bonds and allows the skin to heal while it naturally falls off as the skin sloughs off later after it heals.

Waaaay back during the Dubya years, one of my favorite left-wing Farkers mentioned his biggest mistake ever was mistaking ear wax remover for eye drops.

CSB, kinda...

My grandmother had cataract surgery forever ago and was given antimicrobial / moisturizing eye drops. She had also cracked a fingernail, and was using super glue on it, so you can see where this is going... Anyhow, she super-glued her eye shut (apparently it was all external), but I sent her a dvd of american pie 2, with a note that "it could be worse".

/End CSB.

I'd like to ask about that. My wife had her left eye muscles damaged when she was born, so it is a quite lazy. She still has functional vision from that eye.

I woke up the other day and poured myself a bowl of dry cat food, and almost poured milk on it before realizing it wasn't the cereal canister I'd grabbed.

Me, or the ophthalmologist? I can't tell you much more, but my wife also had misalignment condition since birth, although I do not know the root cause, and it was actually her dominant eye. While she still has a little of that, it is 75-80% better, even now after 15 years.
Now this was laser surgery on her lens, not muscles, but apparently it allowed her to retrain that eye by changing the focus?

Anyway, ask away and we'll answer as well as we can.

Thanks a bunch. I wish I even knew what to ask. But I'll just mention it and see if she even cares. I was always nearsighted, and I did the lasik thing and it was beyond expectations.

Someone once told me to use skin glue instead; that it works better.  I countered that skin glue stays on far far longer sand is also harder to remove yourself, so if the wound goes bad you're in trouble.  Versus with the Krazy glue, you can reapply every could of days if needed, but you're not screwed if you mess it up.

I will second this. Practicing with throwing knives, I decided to try with a machete. Worked far better than I expected, until the hilt hit the tree and it somehow managed to bounce back and up into my chin.

After an hour or two of bleeding, I  cleaned it out with iodine and hydrogen peroxide, held it shut, super glued it, bandaged it, and wrapped some duct tape around it to keep the bandage on for a few days. It actually healed up really well. Just a very light half inch scar that people didn't even notice unless I told them. Looked, and bled, a lot worse at first than it actually was. And no hospital bill. Yay for healthcare.

I have an Uncle who used to be a meat cutter who cut his hand pretty badly on slicer. He said he just used super glue on it and it was fine.

But yeah, you don't want to just pour it in an open wound. Make sure you're just closing the skin.

And yes, I kind of stopped practicing throwing edged weapons after that fun incident.
