In brief: In some cases
It depends on the nature of the injury and specific symptoms.
There are certain situations when patching one eye or using special prism glasses may be of benefit as well as other therapeutic techniques. However, it is always best to be evaluated by a specialist to best assess what makes the most clinical sense for each individual.

In brief: Sometimes
If it didn't work, there wouldn't be any practitioners.
Vision rehab will work only if there is some preserved vision, not in cases of total blindness. In this case rehabilitation is about learning how to live with blindness. Example: braille.
