best ways to treat/cope with a corneal abrasion caused by a stray eyelash or bit of mascara flaking off into the eye?

Please be seen: If you have a corneal abrasion, or think you might due to it feeling like there is something in your eye, it is important to be seen in primary or urgent care, or by an eye doc. Some corneal abrasions require antibiotics to prevent infection and/or require patching to allow for proper healing.
