Recurrent Corneal Abrasion Treatment

Recurrent Corneal Abrasion is an eye disorder in which the person suffers from frequent episodes of corneal abrasion in a year. This clearly indicates that previous body abrasions did not heal properly. People with dry eye or other eye problems such as corneal dystrophy also tend to suffer from recurrent corneal abrasion. In order to prevent recurrent corneal erosion, one can install a humidifier to ensure that the surrounding air remains humid and not dry. Those who have had corneal abrasion, should wear protective glasses while roaming in the sun or playing with children. Use of eye ointments such as Lacri-Lube daily before sleeping can also be beneficial to prevent return of corneal abrasion.

Most importantly, while undergoing corneal abrasion treatment, rubbing the eye affected with corneal abrasion should be avoided as it will just make matters worse. The eyeball should not be touched with cotton swabs or tweezers as they can cause eye infection. Even if the foreign object is trapped in the eye ball, avoid touching it as it can simply aggravate this injury.

Recurrent Corneal Abrasion Treatment

Warm compress
  • Use clean face cloth soaked in warm water, as hot as your eyelids can stand.
  • Bathe your eye (closed) for 5-10 minutes. Rewarm the cloth if it gets cold. This makes the debris easier to remove, as below.
Clean eyelids
  • Clean the edge of your eyelids (the eyelash edge) with a wet cotton bud.
  • Gently scrape off the debris moving the bud side to side.
  • Looking in a mirror, pull your lower eyelid down with the index finger of one hand, and gently but firmly wipe the bud along the edge of the lid to scrape the debris off.
  • With your chin up try the same on the upper, but this is harder.

Cleaning the eyelids

  • First try warm sterile water, that is boiled water allowed to cool but still warm. (Warm tap water is usually quite safe.)
  • Some people recommend a bicarbonate solution instead of plain water. Use a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, available from a chemist or supermarket bakery sections, to a pint of water. You can use this solution for a few days, keeping it in the fridge. Use a small amount each time.
  • Using baby shampoo may help. Place a few frops in a pint of water to dilute it first.
  • An antibiotic cream may help (as above); this can be squirted into the eye, or squirted onto your finger, and you can then spread it over the eyelids. Alternatively, apply the ointment with the cotton bud onto the eyelid.
  • may be a healthy diet will help
