    It is so bad for you to get the corneal erision. The recurrent corneal erosion will last for about a week if you protect the eyes carefully. You could use some eye drops to release the eyes. In addition, you could also use the warm compress to make the eyes feel comfortable. You should not smoke or drink which will irritate your eyes.

    Corneal erosion is a very bad disorder of eyes. The epithlial layer of cornea failed to attach to the underlying membrane which is very excruciating because the extremely sensitive corneal nerves would be exposed. Corneal erosion probably comes from corneal abrasion, corneal ulcer, corneal dystrophy or corneal disease. It is hard to tell how long it will last, because the recovery time depends on severity and treatment. Averagely it will take weeks to heal up. Patients with corneal erosion will have increased sensitivity to light, eye pain, blurry vision, excessive tearing, and rough corneal epithelium, with map-like lines, dots, finger prints or microcyts. It might require surgical curative procedure. You should visit your ophthalmologist as soon as possible to ensure no worse or permanent damages to cornea is formed.
