What are the symptoms of a corneal abrasion?

Pain. Corneal abrasions are usually quite painful, although smaller ones can cause more of a foreign body sensation. In addition, the eye will usually become inflamed and red in the white part, and tear copiously. Sensitivity to light and blurred vision are often present as well. A prompt exam by an ophthalmologist is important to assess the injury, and prevent secindary problems like infection.
Pain. A corneal abrasion is usually very painful, the eye tears, and it may feel like there is something in the eye (especially when you blink). The eye may turn red also.
