eye trouble

ive had a red left eye since sept, 1...before I left on vacation. over the past few days, it has started to get really painful,and my vision is blurry today. unfortunately, i have to be at work today cause my birthday luncheon is today...so i cant do anything until after 2:30 :( .
it's not normal pink eye. no gook. just this random one-sided swollen eye thing. d wants me to check into the ER this afternoon at Cornell or NYU. Im going to see if I can get an appt with an opthamologist, but if not, it looks like the evening will be spent in the ER. Tis ok, since I need to study anyway. no class tonight.

Re: red eye
Lisa....Yes, episcleritis can be related to autoimmune disorders but a majority of cases are idiopathic or have no discernible cause. Scleritis is much more painful so I don't think you have that, as the pain would most likely be too severe for you to be at work. Good luck and let me know how you are after you are seen. Have a piece of birthday cake for me.
