How long does it take for a scratched cornea to fully heal?

I poked myself in the eye with a branch last Sunday. Went to the eye doc on Monday, and did his thing and put on a corneal bandage. Went back on Wednesday and he said everything is just fine. Everything I've read on The Googles leads me to believe that the cornea is a pretty quick healer, but "deep scratches" could take longer.
My eyesight is still pretty blurry...It takes forever to get an appointment at that place (I have a regular exam scheduled for July 8) and I was just curious if anyone's ever had this issue before.
How long did it take for your blurriness to go away? I miss my perfect vision! Am I doomed for life or what? The headaches are becoming annoying, and CTRL + only helps so much....
