I was getting fitted for new glasses the other day, and my optometrist noticed that I had an unusually high number of white blood cells floating around in the back of my eye. I had recently recovered from a contact scratch in my right eye, so I figured the WBC's might be there because of that, but I found it a little odd that they were in both eyes when the left eye was never injured (that I know of). Apparently, this problem is interfering with my vision to the point that they can't find a stable prescription; the refractive readings were inconsistent.
Do you think that the extra WBCs in both eyes are a result of the scratch in the one eye, or some other unknown condition that I should have examined by an optometrist? Also, if this is just an infection response, how long would it be, approximately, before my prescription would be stable?
