Is anyone else fortunate enough to get a poke in the eye with a sharp needle? Every month I get one foe diabetic retinopathy. It really is not painful, y'all should try it.

My mother is 82 and gets one every month. Tough ole girl. I don't even like watching when I take her to the docs..


A trap is only a trap if you dont know about it. If you know about it, its a challenge

Sounds better than a jab in the eye with a sharp stick

Never a shot. But was fortunate enough to go to the eye Dr. twice. One was a wood splinter and the second was 2 metal slivers. It was like the game operation.

I still have the scar in the cornea from steel that got rusty in my eye before it hurt enough to make me go in and have it carved out. I should have gone in sooner.

I use to take my dad monthly for a shot in his one eye. He never complained with all the sedation steps there is not much to feel as he tells it.

Anything eyeball related grosses me out hardcore. I saw an episode of House where this dude's eye popped out. Literally felt like I was going to puke for about a month straight.

I've had a bunch after I had a central retinal vein occlusion.

Not much fun... Doesn't hurt but makes it feel like your eyeball is about to pop.

I'm fortunate that I no longer need them. I was told it would be for the rest of my life.

I have Ocular Histoplasmosis Syndrome and have had several shots in the eye to dead'n the eye ball so it wouldn't move during laser surgery. They tried to stop growing/leaking blood vessels.

Macular degeneration is in my family genetics and I have it in the early stages. So far the AREDS II vitamin is keeping it at bay but injections in the eyes on a regular basis just to keep from going totally blind is in my future if I live long enough.

When mine used to flair up the eye doc would give me a shot of prednisone in the eyeball. They would put something on a q-tip, and lay it one my eye to hold shut for a few minutes before the injection. Wasn't as bad as the thought of it.

Well a girl in primary stabbed me in the eye with one of them mechanical pencils... never even did anything to deserve it either grin but in all honesty I was a 1/10 of a millimetre from being blind in my left eye

Deer hunting on evening in high school i pushed a branch out my way, it snapped back and hit me in the eye. Just happens to be one of those large thorn bushes with long sharp thorns on it. It broke off in my eye. Next day at the eye clinic the Doc strapped my head in a jig so my head wouldn't move, shined some really bright lights in my eye and preceded to dig the thorn out of my eye. I would have preferred a better way but, he got it out.


I will gladly feast on those who would subdue me.

My Dad has been getting them in one of his bad eyes. Not sure if it's the same thing you're talking about but he said it's helping his eye sight.
