In brief: Be sure

Be sure there is no ruptured eye ball/globe.
If just corneal abrasion: antibiotics (i.e. Viagmox) used 3-4x/day, eye rest, antibiotic ointment at night and follow up every day or 2 until it is healed.

In brief: See Eye doctor ASAP

If there are corneal injuries then these may not improve without treatment from an ophthalmologist.
The eye doctor will perform a special exam to see if there are any abrasions or ulcers.
