I was reading a case report about an 18 year old boy with an obsessive-compulsive disorder of eye rubbing. He went to his eye doctor and was diagnosed with a very mild form of keratoconus (thinning of the cornea) and a cataract. After having cataract surgery, his aggressive eye rubbing caused the keratoconus to worsen over the next few months. This caused the cornea becomes misshapen and lead to blurry and distorted vision. Three months later, the boy was diagnosed with retinal detachments in both eyes, again because of repeated eye rubbing. He then had surgery to repair his retinas, but of course, had complications because of his OCD. And you thought you were having a bad day?

I parked my car on the shoulder of Route 29, waited for it to get dark, and this is the result- the world famous “Trenton Makes” bridge. There’s a good chance this will be hanging in my office soon.
