In brief: Yes but
Scratched corneas will lower the vision until healed.
But if your vision is dropping and you have to ask the question, then it probably is something else as scratched corneas are extremely painful and will not allow you to ignore them. For lowered vision see your ophthalmologist for a proper diagnosis and management.
