In brief: Yes

It all depends on the extent of the injury.
If the nerve is intact and you have vision in the eye it can be saved, but there may be injury to the globe, muscles, cornea, lens, or retina. Any significant trauma to eye that would cause such symptoms should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
