I'm not 100% sure, but I believe if the fish is really blind at this point, it will likely not get its vision back. If the loss of sight is due to the eye condition, then sight gets better as the eyes get closer to normal. I had an Annularis angel years ago that had this and it looked really bad for a while, but it cleared up and was totally fine afterwards. Lived several years after with no problems.

Thank you very much for the reply, but his are clear and he has blue pigmentation like all triggers do, and he's able to normally move the eyes

So was he blind before this all happened? I don't recall my angel's eyes being cloudy, just really popped out. He looked like his vision was pretty bad, but he was able to get food.
