In brief: Rarely

Very rarely do corneal abrasions lead to a permanent loss of vision - this is usually from a subsequent infection that is not treated quickly.
Usually, abrasions heal with either no vision loss or very mild vision changes.

In brief: Corneal abrasion

It is rare for corneal abrasions to lead to blindness.
If the abrasion becomes infected and is not treated properly it could lead to scarring of the cornea and a decrease in vision.
