Corneal Abrasion (cont.)
Corneal Abrasion Symptoms
You should suspect a corneal abrasion if you have sustained an injury to your eye.
The following are some of the symptoms you may experience:
- A sensation of a foreign body in the eye (for example, a feeling that there is something in your eye that you cannot get out). This feeling sometimes develops a few hours later rather than immediately after the apparent injury.
- Corneal abrasions, except in cases of chemical or ultraviolet light burns, usually affect only one eye.
- Tearing of the eyes
- Blurred vision or distortion of vision
- Eye pain when exposed to a bright light
- Spasm of the muscles surrounding your eye causing you to squint
