Hello and welcome to HCM
Corneal avrasion is very painful as the cormea is pain sensitive structure.
Cornea is the transparent convex structure that covers the black/ brown/ blue part of the eyeball anteriorly.
Abrasion can result from an injury
to the cornea by foreigh particles especially in lens
wearers (in adults ofcourse).
Pain and watering are the usual symptoms. These symptoms are more pronounced on exposure to light.
Management consists of:
1. Providing rest to eyes.
2. Avoid exposure to light.
3. Antiobiotic eye drops to prevent infection.
3. In case of a child analgesic
eye drops can be used to relieve the pain.
Abrasions usually heal in 48 hours.
Consult yopur doctor for prescription of drugs.
Thanks and take care
