What Causes Corneal Laceration?
Any activity in which objects can fly into the eye at high speed can cause a corneal laceration. The most common causes of a corneal laceration are such activities as:
- cutting wood
- grinding metal
- trimming grass
- carving stone
Contact with dust, dirt, sand, or even an edge of a piece of paper can possibly cut the cornea if enough force is involved.
Most corneal lacerations can be prevented by using protective eye wear during high-risk activities.
