In brief: Trauma, head, face

Traumatic facial injuries and to the skull are occasioned by severe level of impact.
Besides the obvious deformities, the not so obvious brain concussion can be difficult to assess. Neuroradiologic evaluation early and in follow up can look for physical problems, but assessment of more intangible problems is the speciality of neurologist and rehabilitation medicine.

In brief: Craniofacial Injury

How a child is affected by a craniofacial injury depends on many factors, including but not limited to: age, type and extent of the injury.
I suppose that the inquirer refers to eye health alone, where is what i can give an opinion. The question as posted is too broad to give meaningful answers.
