In brief: Not likely
A corneal scratch (abrasion) is a loss of the thin skin covering the cornea.
Usually this does not involve the deeper layers and as long as the eye is not penetrated or infected, visual loss is very uncommon. You should see an ophthalmolgist for a corneal scratch both for symptomatic relief and for proper treatment.
