In brief: Wide range of things
Anything from an abrasion of tissues that heals without permanent damage to blindness from a penetrating injury due to infection.
Bleeding in the eye, cataract formation, and corneal scarring are common from sharp injuries. See an eye md emergently for such an injury.
