Can bicycling abrade the corneas?

I have insurance that pays for optometric care for the first time, so I went to a new optometrist (old one not in the plan). He told me my corneas were lightly abraded, attributed it to slack lids (may be true) leaving them open at night. I'm dubious. I bike a lot, and don't usually wear glasses. That seems a more likely cause. I'm 65, in case that matters. I've been riding for 58 years. No optometrist or ophthalmologist has mentioned this before.
