  • The cornea is the clear membrane of the eye covering the pupil and iris (colored portion of the eye). A corneal abrasion describes a cut on the cornea.

  • Eye pain
  • Vision may be reduced

  • Trauma:
    1. Fingernails

  • Fluorescein eye exam-test using a special dye placed in the eye allowing the doctor to look at the eye with a black light. The abrasion then can be seen.
