In brief: Cornea
Cornea heals quite fast within hours to a few days.
Follow ophthalmologist instructions. Do not rub eye-eyelids.

In brief: Brief
This is used in recurrent erosion cases primarily.
Bandage (comfort) contacts are generally left in place until healing occurs over 4-5 days so there is minimal discomfort.

In brief: Scratchy a few days
Because the cornea contains so many nerve endings, your eye may be scratchy for a few days.
In addition to following your ophthalmologist's recommendations regarding any eyedrops to use, you may find relief with cold compresses applied several times a day to the operated eye for a few days.
