Corneal Abrasion (cont.)

Follow-up

If you have a simple corneal abrasion, your ophthalmologist may ask you to return for a recheck in 24-48 hours.

More serious or complex problems usually require a follow-up examination. If you have any unusual or unexpected symptoms, contact your ophthalmologist to discuss them.

Ask questions if you are not sure of the diagnosis or the treatment plan. Do not leave until you are sure when your next appointment is and under what circumstances you are to contact your ophthalmologist or to return before your next appointment.

Remember, unpredictable things happen, and medical problems do not always follow textbook descriptions.
