In brief: Occasional
A corneal abrasion is a disturbance of the surface of the cornea which is covered in a clear layer of tissue.
Abrasions are caused by trauma (direct hits), or scratching usually accidental and by situations in the workplace when safety glasses should have been worn. It happens a lot, most heal quickly but some require ophthalmological attention.
