    Well, relax. Althoug it is possible lead to blindness because of a scratched cornea, it rarely does so. When you hurt your cornea, you may get scratched eyes. Then eye pain, eye red are on the way. If you are really in this condition, visit a doctor at first and take a overall examination, then take a note from your doctor and have a good rest. By the way, don't rub your eyes if you feel itching and pain, or your eyes may get a deeper injury.

    well, yes, in some degree, it can be dangerous to be blind when you have a serious scratched eyes. generally speaking, if you have scratched eyes, it can be very dangerous. it can make your eyes become red, bloodshot, easy infected. In my opinion, you may take some warm cloth on your eyes and it can relieve the symptom. Also, just have some medicine from the doctor. Besides, you can just wear the eye patch. By wearing an eye patch, it can be bothersome, but doing so will insure a speedy recovery for scratched corneas. anyway, do not ignore the problems.
