Yes.  This is exactly the problem that isolated worlds is trying to
solve.  The implementation in the bindings to the V8 JavaScript engine
is complete.  I believe the implementation in the JavaScriptCore
bindings is complete as well.  You should look for some APIs with the
words "isolated" and "world" in their name.

If you'd like a high-level explanation of what this feature does, see
Section 4.3 of http://www.adambarth.com/papers/2010/barth-felt-saxena-boodman.pdf
(particularly the paragraph named "isolated worlds").
