If you have any of the symptoms of a corneal abrasion, you should seek care from your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.). He or she will perform a thorough eye examination. During the examination, your Eye M.D. may put numbing drops in your eye so that it can stay open for the examination.
To accurately diagnose a corneal abrasion, your Eye M.D. may perform a fluorescein eye stain. This is a test that uses orange dye (fluorescein) and a blue light to detect damage to the cornea.
