Question

 

 

 

Hi,

I scratched my eye with a fingernail. It appears like, a very small portion on my eyeball has come out.

Please let me know if this is a serious concern. The scratched portion is to the left on the eyeball.

Thanks

Corneal scratch

 

Answer

 

 

 

Thanks for your Question

Corneal abrasion or scratch heals within 3-5 days but you should use preservative free lubrication with antibiotics eye drops to prevent infection.

You should visit your eye doctor if you have red eye, severe pain, blurred vision or the appearance of white patches on the cornea
