Corneal injury

Abrasion - corneal; Scratch - corneal; Eye pain - corneal

Corneal injury is a wound to the part of the eye known as the cornea. The cornea is the crystal clear (transparent) tissue that covers the front of the eye. It works with the lens of the eye to focus images on the retina.


The cornea is the crystal clear portion of the surface of the eye that lets light enter. The cornea is well supplied with nerve endings which is why some people can never get used to wearing contacts.
