The powerful midfielder suffered damage to the retina of his eye after being accidentally kicked in the face by Benfica's Beto during Tuesday's UEFA Champions League defeat in Lisbon.
Sissoko was forced to spend a night in hospital in Portugal with the injury and clinical director at the hospital Joao Paco admitted there is a chance the player may lose sight in his eye.
"The prognosis is guarded but vision is going to be compromised on the right side, it may be 80 or 20 percent, but we can't say yet," said Paco.
"He suffered trauma with bruising to the eye but there was no apparent destruction of the structure."
The former Valencia ace is expected to undergo more tests on his eye on Thursday as Liverpool look to find out the full extent of the problem.
