Corneal Laceration

Corneal laceration is an injury or cut of the cornea. Your cornea can be cut when something sharp flies into your eye like wood shavings, metal particles, contact lenses or even the edge of a piece of paper. Corneal cut can be partial or full depending on the injuring force. If the cut is full in severe, it can lead to a ruptured globe

Avoid Injury to your cornea by adhering to using protective glasses when you are doing high-risk activities.
