    Yes, the corneal abrasion which is the scratch in the surface of the corneal will heal by itself. However, in order to let you get recovery soon, you could go to see the doctor to have some medicine with anti-inflammation role. Thus, you could get recovery soon. During this time, you'd better not use your eyes too much time.
