I am not sure how the Juvederm would cause corneal abrasions, and I think your symptoms are likely not related to the Juvederm.  If there is any doubt in your mind, the Juvederm can be dissolved with hyaluronidase in your doctors office. Good luck in finding the cause for your symptoms, and keep and open mind about other possibilities.  I hope this helps, Lana Long, M.D.
