Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Most corneal abrasions heal very well within a day or two. If your eye continues to have redness;pain,watering and sensitivity to light then it needs a closer look by an ophthalmologist. For a deeper corneal abrasion or even a corneal ulcer apart from antibiotics we need to give cycloplegic eye drops as they relax the muscles within the eye and give relief from pain and browache. Healing can take anywhere between 1 to 2 weeks depending on the extent of corneal involvement.
