How To Treat Corneal Abrasion?
how do you deal with corneal abrasion, and please give instructions on the medicine?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Corneal abrasion is one of the most common eye injuries. This condition causes discomfort in vision, red eyes, uncomfortable when seeing bright lights, and watery eyes.
There are various causes of this condition, including:
Contact lens wear Irritation by dust and sand affected by eyes Eyes punctured by fingers or other objects Riding a motorbike without a helmet face mask Dry eye Exposed to certain chemicals in the eyes Rubbed the eyes too hard Infection
Keep in mind that corneal abrasion does not always occur immediately after someone has done or experienced one of the causes above, it can be days or weeks afterwards due to accumulation of repetitive behavior, so it is natural that you do not find possible causes for your condition.
As for medicine or treatment, this will depend on the gravity of the situation. If there are still objects attached to the eye, you should immediately go to the nearest hospital emergency room to remove the object. If the abrasion is small, it's not a problem and it will heal itself within a few days, and if there is evidence of bacterial infection, antibiotic eye drops may be needed. Therefore, it is very important for you to see yourself to an ophthalmologist to find out which of these conditions best represents your situation. If your ophthalmologist thinks you don't need medicine, you won't be given medicine, but the examination is mandatory, because if you don't, we'll never know.
Meanwhile, the important thing is not to rub your eyes too tight, don't use contact lenses first, and when driving using a motorcycle, wear a helmet that covers your face. So, hopefully answering your question.
