Glasses vs. contacts

    Well, it wasn't that easy. What happened was once the parasites lodged between the contact and eye (which happened the instant the tainted water hit the eye), the parasites began working on the eye. From that instant, there was nothing she could do but take medication and wait it out. Poor woman said even a candle in a pitch black room bothered her. She described it as "Someone pouring shampoo in your eyes while cutting it with a razor and pouring in sand."

    Ouch. Had she had glasses on, the parasites would have washed out instead of getting stuck. Something like 1 in 3 million get the infection. Pretty rare infection and can be fatal.
