    Well, it seems that your eyes have got some problems. So, as a matter of fact, a scratched cornea could be quite serious sometimes and could give rise to some other problems. Generally speaking, its symptoms consist of photophobia, and maybe watery eyes, or painful eyes, and perhaps a decreased vision. Anyway, you should get an eye exam at the hospital and take measures to fix it.

    You could see in front of the mirror to find that whether you have the problems at the corneal. If you have the scratched eyes, your eyes may feel pricking. Although the scratched cornea is so little which could be ignored, you could still feel it because of the pain. However, it will be healed by itself.

    Well, first, you should know it is kind of dangerous to have scratched corneal, for it can lead to serious problems. According to some researches, when you have a scratched corneal, it is possible to have many symptoms. In common, you will feel painful in your eyes. Also, in some cases, your eyes will become red, irritated, and even puffy. What is more, bleeding may happen too. so you can check it with your situation. And in my opinion, if your situation is not serious, you can take some home remedies to relieve it. For example, you can just wear the eye patch to protect your eyes from bacteria, which can make your situation worse. Also, warm compresses can be helpful too. Anyway, just have a try. if it still exists, you should go and see the doctor as soon as possible.
