Thankfully my visage is somewhat less freakish now that my eyes seem somewhat more normal. When I went to see my student buddy (through Big Brothers) yesterday at his school he asked, "Whoa, what happened to your eyes?"
The whites of my eyes are white again and just in time for my optometrist's appointment. Rei accompanied me and did quite well considering the new place and its people. Her vision is fine; mine has gotten slightly worse. We'll see if new glasses are in the offing.
He chalked up my ocular distress to poor air quality on the plane or any other external factor. I haven't heard of anyone else in Saskatchewan coming down with red-eye so I guess I can relinquish my status as Patient Zero.
