Eyesight problems resulting from eye injuries:

 1 Jewely J, Thu, 19th May '11 9:37:07 AM from where the food is
One of my characters wears glasses because as a young child he was injured by an older cousin. It is suggested that the character might have been blinded were it not for the fact that his kind had unusually durable bodies (to make way for pre-puberty superpowers.)

What kind of eyesight problem would he have near-sightedness or far sighetedness?

Scratched corneas?

Hmm I know but how would that effect his visual abilities.
They make your vision cloudy, if you have a lot of scratches.

Something interesting I found a while back.

Neither one, probably. Near-and far-sightedness are the result of the shape of the eyeball. A trauma to the eye is unlikely to change the shape of the eyeball.

Here's a webpage listing the possible complications of trauma to the eye. You'll need to follow the links for each one for more information.

It says you have to be a registered user, Mad.

The Other Wiki has this to say about eye injury.
If I'm asking for advice on a story idea, don't tell me it can't be done.

^^ Huh. When I try to follow the direct link, I get the subscription required page. When I follow this link (http://www.google.com/search?q=Traumatic+Eye+injury+complications&hl=en&prmd=ivns&ei=FU7VTYYWjIS2B63mnYcM&start=20&sa=N 8th item down on that page) from a Google Search, it takes me right to the article. And I'm not subscribed.

Glaucoma comes to mind, since it's caused by excessive intraocular pressure. Detached retinas are perhaps an even better option.

Either way, it would be surprising if it happened to both eyes.

^ Unless the injury happened to both eyes. Or the injury caused an infection that spread to the uninjured eye (that's what happened to Louis Braille).

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
