Corneal Abrasion Definition

Definition

A corneal abrasion is a scratch on the cornea. The cornea is the clear, front surface of the eye. It is located directly in front of the iris, the colored part of the eye. The cornea has several layers that protect the eye. Some corneal abrasions may form a scar and permanently impair vision.
