Based on the mechanism and extent of the injury in his right eye, his visual prognosis is fairly poor.  An analogy I like to use with patients is that if you imagine your eye to be a camera, the retina represents the film, therefore when the film is severely damaged, no matter how everything else is made to improve, one still is unable to take good pictures.  The only things else I would consider is a second opinion from a retinal specialist regarding if any more can be done to improve the vision in the right eye.  Otherwise, I would advise safety glasses at all times to protect the vision on the left.
