In brief: Variable
Depends on size, depth, location, healing rate, tear film. Usually an epithelial abrasion does not result in a scar. So once healed, vision returns.

In brief: Usually, yes!
In most cases, corneal abrasions completely heal leading to normal vision.
We most often are concerned about recurrent corneal erosion or where the corneal surface re-opens spontaneously at the site of injury. This is best prevented with lots of artificial tears.
