Hello,

Your boyfriend has a corneal abrasion. This will heal in about a day or so. For temporary relief, he should use a think lubricating eye ointment available over the counter. He also needs to see an eye doctor to evaluate the extent of the abrasion and prescribe antibiotic eye drops to prevent infection.

You will need to see an eye doctor. They have numbing eye drops which will help with the pain temporarily. If the abrasion is extensive, they can also place a contact lens that acts as a bandage.
