In brief: Unlikely
It's not impossible but it is unlikely.
Only 5-15% of patients who suffer visual loss from gca have any improvement in vision at all after the initial insult, and complete recovery is unusual.

In brief: Temporal arteritis
Some recovery is possible but sadly, it could be very limited.
That is why diagnosing and treating this disease in a timely manner is so critical. Ongoing treatment and monitoring under the care of your doctor can help protect the remaining vision.
