If without your eye-corrective wear, you see this 1.5 inch tall bottle and think it's a bottle of eye drops...
...it is not. It is a small bottle of antibiotic numbing agent for our toddler's recent ear infection. In fact, much pain will ensue if you use said liquid as eye drops. And, by much pain I mean a level of burn discomfort likened to what a newborn chinchilla would feel should it be birthed on the surface of the sun and immediately vaccinated with 63 ammonia injections. Imagine a full grown 200lb man doubled over trying not to scream like a little girl working to peel a 2ml thick piece of plastic out of an eye who's eyelids are in such despair they will under no circumstances short of death seem to release their hold on the liquid fire engulfing the eyeball.
Never again will my brain process OTIC as OPTIC when in a blurry hurry.
Special thanks to poison control, the very kind eye surgeon who took our call, overnight eye ointment and the sink for 20 minutes of eye rinsing for helping restore my vision to a mostly normal state.
