    If you get the serious corneal abrasion, it is an emergency which needs the treatment as soon as possible. Or else, it may affect your vision. However, if there is only the small scratch in the eyes, this kind of corneal abrasion will be healed by itself. You should just take good care of the daily life, including the sleeping and eating.

    Well, generally speaking, it can be annoying to have corneal abrasion and it is dangerous to have this situation. And, according to some researches, it is caused by the eye infection. Corneal abrasion is often caused by eye infection such as bacteria, viruses or environmental agents. And when you get corneal abrasion, you may get blurred vision. For the treatment, you should find out the direct infection cause. In common, one or two days are essential for a basic one to heal. You can use some cool tea bags under your eyes so that it can relieve your situation. Also, wearing an eye patch will also be helpful, for it can protect your eyes from being infected. Anyway, just pay more attention to it.
