Ya know, TV writers sometimes like to exaggerate. Take for example,episode of rules of engagement from march 8th. When Jeff accidentally hits Audrey, she gets a corneal abrasion. Cornea is the front clear part of the eye. The top layer of this tissue is the epithelium which is loaded with corneal nerves. If the epithelium gets denuded the naked cornea gets stimulated, in other words it is very painful.The treatment depends on the size of the corneal abrasion. For very small abrasions, no intervention may be necessary. At our Beverly Hills office we treat larger abrasions with non steroidal anti inflammatory drops. Our Eye Surgeon may even give topical anesthetics. A therapeutic bandage contact lens seals the deal. Where my friends is the question of the pirate patch. In Beverly Hills people cant afford to look like weirdos. So my friends who write script get real. Get a real Corneal specialist like Rajesh Khanna, MD to advise you.
