Default can you go blind from getting hit in the eye?

we all know people get black eyes when you get punched near or around the eye... but can you go blind from a direct hit to the eye? how does it work... blinking wont really help, would it? isnt it a bad thing to close your eyes when a punch comes in? but a direct knuckle shot in the eye.. can it cause blindness in the eye, or just a black eye? never heard of a person go blind, but i always wondered, how can it get that messed up around, but the vision remains the same? a kid in my school got cheap shotted and messed up bad for going for some kids girlfriend, and his eye is very black and blue around, but he can open it and idk if it screwed up his vision. can it make you go blind or screw up vision?

Yes but indirectly. Blood from the bruise could drain into your eye cavity, causing blindness.

I guess anything can happen, never before injuries happen all the time. Punching to the back of the head is illegal because that can cause trauma, bleeding, and blindness. And bare knuckle is that much more dangerous than MMA and boxing, because you have sharp pointy knuckles hitting you.

Myodesopsia is a leading cause of Retinal detachment, that happens when u get hit in the eye many times oh a detached retina could cause permanent blindness and surgery is quite risky...

Eye poke might do that too, Jens Pulver went temporalily blind after eye poke but eye was fine, it just needed some time.

I guess too much scar tissue is bad in the eye
And if you fracture the bones around your eye, you might see double. Bjorn Bregy says he still sees double since his fight with Schilt.

I know one guy who got hit in the eye, got his cornea scratched and had to take some time off.
