Big small eyes

On Sunday evening, I noticed YX's left eye was a bit swollen (like insect bite) and the upper eye lid was a little bit red. I told myself, something is wrong. YX did not complaint of pain or itchy.

Big small eyes
On Monday morning, when I woke him up from sleep, I was shocked to see his left eye was covered with green cum white discharged. The swell got even worst. Quickly rushed him to brush his teeth and sent him to the eye specialist.



Eye medications
Doc said it was the starting of getting a 'red eye' and precaution must be taken to prevent it from spreading. He has to stop school for the time being and avoid contact with others because it is very contagious.

Glad after a few eye drops and eye cream, YX's eye recovered. The swell subsided and no more discharged. However, to apply the first drop of eye medications on him was a struggle. He was so scared and was crying for help. After much persuasions, he agreed to apply the medications but with his eyes closed. Once tested, he was actually looking forward to apply the eye drops !
