    Corneal Abrasion

    Overview


    • Cornea is outer layer of the eye
    • Tearing away of this layer leads to corneal abrasion.
    • Most common injury to the eye
    • Multiple nerve endings present in cornea, hence painful

    Causes May be caused by
    • A finger nail
    • Any sharp flying object like pencil, glass
    • Tiny particles, like sand
    • Contact lens

    Symptoms
    • Pain
    • Redness of the eye
    • Blurred vision
    • Discomfort in the eye
    • Difficulty in opening eyes
    • Head ache
    • Discharge of tears

    Treatment
    • Antibiotic used to prevent infection
    • Examination is done after using an anaesthetic
    • Pain returns after anaesthetic is stopped
    • Repeated usage of anaesthetic is harmful
    • Eye ointments, pain relievers are provided
    • A ‘patch’ may be put on the eyes
    • Eye ointments/ lubricants at night prevents recurrence

    Do Not
    • Do not rub eyes during healing phase
    • This may destroy the newly forming cells
    • Repatching may then be necessary
    • Do not wear contact lens till cured

    Prognosis
    • Small corneal abrasions heal quickly
    • Blurriness may last for a few weeks
    • Permanent loss of sight is rare
    • Occasionally abrasions may recur

    Prevention
    • Always follow instructions while using contact lens
    • Do not wear contact lens for too long
    • Remove lens if irritation /dryness occurs
    • Do not rub eyes too hard
    • Wash hands whenever required
    • Trim your nails regularly
    • Be careful while using ‘glitter’ make up
    • Wear protective gears while sporting
