I doubt that would work. Hydrostatic shock
would still pulp the brain from the aftershock- he'd be dead as a doornail.
The only possible option would be for the bullet to graze the eye and socket. If it enters the skull cavity, your character is done for.
If it bursts his eye and takes off a bit of the socket, then you need surgery and an eyepatch. And probably psychological rehabilitation.
