What happens to an individual's vision if the cornea is scratched?

In brief: Blur

As the cornea is healing from the scratch it generally gets a little swollen so the vision gets cloudy.
If the scratch is directly in front of the pupil, the vision will be quite blurry until the skin covering the cornea is healed.
