Central abrasion: Corneal abrasions almost always heal rapidly and the absense of pain suggests that has happened with your eye. However, if the abrasion was centrally located or there is foreign material in the central cornea, then the vision might remain blurred for a time. Check with your ophthalmologist for a diagnosis. ...Read more
Not likely: A corneal scratch (abrasion) is a loss of the thin skin covering the cornea. Usually this does not involve the deeper layers and as long as the eye is not penetrated or infected, visual loss is very uncommon. You should see an ophthalmolgist for a corneal scratch both for symptomatic relief and for proper treatment. ...Read more

Depends on abrasion: It all depends how big and how deep the abrasion is. If we are talking about superficial, small corneal abrasion, the best treatment is lots of lubrication with artificial tears. If we are dealing with a large, and deep abrasion, patient might need a bandage contact lens until full re-epithelization of the corneal cells, and also antibiotic drops to prevent an infection. ...Read more
Yes: Minor scuff areas may heal naturally if bathed in normal tear film. When the come to a doc's attention, they are usually painful and deeper and deserve monitoring for proper healing.I often use an antibiotic eye drop to keep invasive bacteria away from the wound. Patching was often used in the past but is of little value. I send the worst cases to an eye doc for close monitoring ( deep scratches). ...Read more
