Caption

A red, sore-looking eye in a case of a corneal abrasion. The cornea is the transparent membrane which covers the front of the eyeball. It refracts light entering the eye onto the lens. The cornea contains no blood vessels, but is extremely delicate & sensitive to pain. Scratches (abrasions) may be caused by foreign bodies adhering to the membrane. Treatment consists of finding & removing any foreign particles, cleaning the cornea & allowing the eye to rest for a day or two.
