Hello Bedha, Thank you for the question.
Do you know the doctor's diagnosis? The presence of scratches on the cornea can cause corneal abrasion or corneal ulcers (corneal ulcers). In addition to direct injury to the eye (in the form of scratches), wearing contact lenses and exposure to chemicals can also cause corneal abrasions or ulcers. Corneal injuries can make infection easier. Patients will experience complaints of eye pain, red eyes, watery eyes, eyes sensitive to light, discomfort / blockage in the eyes, visible white spots or patches in the eyes, to visual disturbances. To diagnose this condition, further examination by a doctor is required. If it is proven that it is caused by corneal abrasion / ulcer, the doctor will usually give eye drops containing antibiotics. Depending on the severity of the patient's condition, in general, complaints will improve if this condition is treated immediately; the vision will improve and the white patches may disappear. Research shows that vitamin C can help heal the cornea of the eye. Usually this condition resolves in 2-3 weeks with the right treatment. Please continue your treatment from an ophthalmologist. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor immediately if the complaint does not improve after undergoing treatment.
Also do the following recommendations:
avoid rubbing sore eyes, always keep your hands clean avoid exposure to air pollution, wear eye patches or protective glasses if necessary if you use contact lenses, you should avoid using them until your eyes heal Hopefully this information is useful.
