On cut science @CutmanMatt
That's basically Splinty without a redneck accent
I had a corneal abrasion about two month ago. No idea how it happened but holy fuck did it sting. Some common symptoms I experienced:
1. Extreme light sensitivity. I had to keep all the lights in my room off. I left the house to get eye drops (huge mistake lol) and the sunlight hurt my eye so fucking badly. It was impossible to open my eye outside. Even inside Walmart the lights were too bright so I had to do the Tony Ferguson and wear my sunglasses indoors.
2. Putting a contact lens on the eye actually reduced light sensitivity, which makes sense bc it adds an extra layer. But because I knew that the contact lens would extend the healing process, I took it out.
3. DO NOT put eye drops in your eye. It's like pouring peroxide or rubbing alcohol over a fresh wound, only 100x more painful. Holy fuck never do that (I didn't know what the problem was at the time)
oh, wanted to like the guy but he annoyed me, so now I'm just as pig ignorant as I was when I mosied on in. this sucks.
4. It got 75% better in a day and was completely healed after two days
The cutman video was basically correct. No one really uses avitene because its messy. I use thrombin if I want a clot.
Also, the grease I use to plug cuts is made in a compounding pharmacy and has epi in it as well. I use regular stuff just for greasing at the beginning or general re-greasing during the fight.
BUT as good as our hero cutman did in the fight, its amateur hour shit to work barehanded like that. I dont wear gloves to protect myself from the fighters goobers and grossness, theyre tested and clean. I wear them to protect the fighters open wounds from the cootie farm that is the human hand.
So sort of "Task failed successfully" in my book.
