In brief: Eye injury

Eye injuries vary in there severity and length of recovery.
If minor, recovery can be a few days as in a corneal abrasion. If severe, as in a laceration of the eyeball, recovery may never completely recover, particularly in regard of vision.

In brief: Depends on severity

Something simple like a corneal abrasion can feel a lot better in a day or so.
Something like an open globe or orbital fracture can take months to years to heal and stabilize.
