I would like to know what the chances are that a cornea can repair itself from an injury caused by a shallow puncture. There is no foreign matter or infection present, but there is a raised area of the cornea that may or may not be able to re-adhere. My vision is significantly blurred in that eye, but I am very willing to wait it out if I thought there was a good chance of self-healing.
Can a cornea injury repair itself and restore my good vision Doctor O?
If not, what sort of operation might I need?
Thank you for your consideration of these questions, Ian.
