Description

The primary care physician should be aware of recurrent corneal erosion, a condition that is quite common but is often misdiagnosed, Most cases are a result of minor corneal abrasion, after which the corneal epithelium undergoes a cycle of breakdown and healing that may last for months. Use of a bland antibiotic ointment twice a day for 4 to 8 weeks may be successful, but if the patient is very uncomfortable or continues to have symptoms, referral to an ophthalmologist is appropriate.
