I read that it can be a while before eye damage becomes evident. You really should go to an ophthalmologist ASAP

That's the first thing I noticed - the hole.  Seriously hope the OP is alright.

So I'm feeling okay... my eye ball feels like it might be swollen. I thought it was a brilliant idea at the time and couldn't find the sun through the scope, until it literally melted a hole through the glasses. I was like"where the hell is the sun, oh, there it is, Wow, it's bright, OUCH!. I didn't realize it would be just like a magnifying glass trying to melt crayons or ants. It feels swollen and a little aching, but my vision seems okay for now.

How is the eye doing?

Your making it hard to thin the pack, with these PSA's
What is a PSA?
"Boss of the woods"
(this is in reference to the biggie not me).
