I personally reversed my vision from -7 to -3 in a span of 5 years, mostly with diet and pixel pushing. So I don't doubt it's possible.

If your eye ball has been destroyed then you need to see a doctor or an eye specialist right away!

Sorry question is not clear ,
I mean is it possible to train samadhi and restore the eye sight ? If with samadhi one achieve clairvoyance this mean seeing is not necessarily dependence on contact !

Eyes vs sense object = seeing

I'm interested. What do you mean by pixel pushing? Also, I don't know how old you are, but if you happen to be over 35, can you be sure your gain is not simply due to the onset of presbyopia, which I understand is sometimes accompanied by an improvement in pre-existing myopia?

Venerable Anuruddha went up to Venerable Sāriputta, and exchanged greetings with him. When the greetings and polite conversation were over, he sat down to one side and said to him:

“Here’s the thing, Reverend Sāriputta. With clairvoyance that is purified and surpasses the human, I survey the entire galaxy. My energy is roused up and unflagging, my mindfulness is established and lucid, my body is tranquil and undisturbed, and my mind is immersed in samādhi.
