Default Lost one eye, about to lose the other.

I've owned a hedgehog for just over a month-ish. Bought him from a co-worker who never spent any time with him, or even named him, in the year he had him. Socialization has been tricky. He doesn't trust people yet. But I bring him out every night to explore and get used to me.
A few weeks ago he scratched his eye somehow (probably because his nails weren't ever trimmed), and eventually lost it. Today I noticed he has scratched his other eye somehow and will probably lose it to. I know hedgies don't have good eyesight to begin with so I'm hoping he will adapt quickly as long as I don't change his setup around. I just hope this doesn't hinder our bonding further, because he does seem more skittish now. Any suggestions appreciated.
