Lost my cornea somewhere on the mat

Haven't been training much lately after I got a toe in my eye and ripped off the entire cornea on the right eye. Spent all night in hospital, then four days in pain without being able to open my eye. Still got blurry vision, but it is improving steadily and there shouldn't be any long term complications.

Four months ago, I scratched my cornea (same eye) by sliding it along the collar of my opponents gi during a double leg sweep. It was probably the most horrible pain of my life.... untill this happened.

Fucking hell, worst injury ever. I don't recommend it.

Managed to teach a seminar in Bolton in the UK with one eye though!! :)

Maybe the patch will make a good pirate angle.

Other than that, awful news.

My 14 year old son has just recovered from a scratched cornea. I can only imagine the pain at one being ripped off.
