The Thread in Your Eye

I awoke one morning with a terrible pain in my eye. I had no idea why it hurt, but I could not do what needed to be done that day with that kind of pain in my eye. I went to the Optometrist who spent a great deal of time examining my eye. Then he reached in with a swab and said, "There it is." On the end of the swab was a thread so small that I could hardly see it!

Small things can cause big troubles. I’m glad that I decided to go to the specialist instead of to my neighbor, or worse, myself. I would not have liked it a bit if the person examining me had a 2x4 in her eye!
