In brief: Short time interval

A corneal abrasion is the loss of the overlying skin on the cornea, the window that lets light into the front of the eye.
They are usually quite painful. Your ophthalmologist should see this, and may use eyedrops, a therapeutic contact lense and sometimes patching. Healing is usually rapid in 1-2 days unless there is a problem. Try not to treat this yourself.
