Vision loss: Failure to treat hemangiomas in infants early can result in permanent vision deficits. Hemangiomas that develop in children after infancy usually do not have permanent effects on vision.

Depends on age: Amblyopia, or poorly developed vision because visual deprivation secondary to a hemangioma may be reversed under the age of 8 to 10 with patching of the good eye and and spectacles if needed.After this age the vision will not recover.

Possibly: Depends also where this hemangioma is. Is this a retinal hemangioma? A cavernous hemangioma? A lid hemangioma? It is a good sign that color vision is preserved, which means the optic nerve still is functioning. Prognosis depends on what has been affected and how the hemangioma was/has been treated.
