What might your eye doctor do to relieve a scratched cornea? Lubricating drops, antibiotic drops or ointment, or a temporary “bandage lens” (similar to a contact lens but designed to protect the eye) may be prescribed to encourage healing.

Early eye exams ensure that children have healthy vision to perform their best at school and at play. The American Optometric Association recommends that infants have their first comprehensive eye exam at age 6 months. Schedule additional exams at age 3 and at age 5 or 6, before they enter first grade.

What are the signs of a corneal abrasion? Eye redness, tears, increased sensitivity to light, headache, blurry or decreased vision, and even nausea. Call your eye doctor right away if you’re experiencing these symptoms.

Heading to the beach? Kids are at risk for corneal abrasions: Sand, dirt and dust kicked up by rambunctious play may make it past eyelashes and eyelids and enter the eye, causing irritation and possibly a painful scratch to the eye’s surface.

August is Vision and Learning Month. Did you know that 1 in 4 children have an undiagnosed vision problem? Since 80% of learning is tied to vision, if your child isn’t seeing well, they may not be learning well. Schedule a back-to-school eye exam to ensure your student is ready. Call us today!

It doesn’t take a traumatic event, such as getting poked or hit in the eye, to cause a corneal abrasion. Anything from fingers or makeup brushes to pets or sports equipment can easily scratch the eye. Even a puppy this cute!

Because your eyelid grazes a corneal abrasion every time you blink, it can take up to a week for it to heal, and complications including infections or corneal ulcers can arise. If you’re experiencing eye pain, contact your optometrist immediately.

July is Eye Injury Prevention Month. One of the most common eye injuries is a corneal abrasion: a scratch to the surface of your eye. With lots of nerve endings that alert you when something is in your eye, they can be very painful. Ouch!
