Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. Do you wear contact lenses?

Customer:

Yes. I have not worn my left lens in three days

Dr. Rick :

It is possible that you have a corneal ulcer -- an infection of the meat of your eyeball. This, if left untreated, can cause a lot of damage to your eye....

Dr. Rick :

I think you should get in to see an ophthalmologist today.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
