16 Mar I can’t be bothered to blink all the way

I’ve been having consistently pink or even red eyes for the last few months, so I went to the optometrist today to get things checked.

The good news: my distance vision is still 20/15, and my reading glasses are still the mildest lens they make. The bad news: apparently, when I blink my eyes don’t close all the way(?!) and they aren’t getting the proper lubrication. I’m still trying to decide if I’m so lazy that I can’t blink right, or so busy that I don’t have time to blink all the way.

They dilated my pupils, so I’ve spent the afternoon in my room with the blinds drawn, looking like an anime character. The end result: eye drops three times a day for two weeks (because I need to be even more high-maintenance).
