Customer Question

I have a corneal abrasion (diagnosed by my primary doc) and am waiting to get into an opthamologist. In the meantime, I've started getting a black half moon at the bottom of my eye. When I look up, it goes up...when I look down, it goes down. It started as a milky/foggy area and has changed to this. I'm worried about this development.
