What is SPK?

It stands for superficial punctate keratitis, and it has something to do with spots on the cornea from wearing contacts too much. Whatever it is, it means I have to put these eye drops every 2 hours for at least a month.

This little guy costs about $20 a bottle and only lasts about a week. Not fun for a poor college student.

The whole every-2-hour-eye-drop-thing gets real fun in my 4-hour class on Tuesdays. I can either put them in in class (awkward) or go to the restroom every 2 hours (still awkward).

SPK also means I can't wear my contacts until it goes away, and that could be a very long time. I hate wearing my glasses.

SPK, please go away. I want to wear my contacts again.
