Can the sphincter muscle in the eye heal?

Smith, Justine (Johannesburg)  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
A friend of mine was hit in the eye by a squash ball, the eye specialist says that the Sphincter muscle is torn. Is there any medical procedure that can fix this type of injury? The specialist says that very few of these injuries actually heal and the pupil can adjust again.

Regards, Justine
What do you think?
