Honestly, you need to be asking this question to your ophthalmologist.  I don't know the extent of your injury.  It can be more than you think initially since there can be swelling of the retina and even something more serious like a retinal detachment.  There can also be significant corneal sweling, damage to the iris and lens and bleeding in the front and back of the eye.  Make sure to always wear eye protection when playing with this sort of gun.  Remember Murphy's Law - whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.
