    A 32-year-old woman presents with sharp right-eye pain on opening her eyes this morning. Initially she felt as if she had a piece of glass in her eye. Now her eye feels sandy and dry. She notes that the vision was blurry this morning, but is slowly improving. She reports no history other than a remote corneal abrasion from a tree branch several years ago in her right eye.
