Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

The eye / head needs to be examined and possibly a an x-ray can be advised to rule out a possible fracture. If there is no fracture then non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs such as naproxen or Ibuprofen can be advised along with ice therapy to reduce the inflammation and swelling. If there was any history of altered mental state or loss of consciousness after the trauma then a CT brain can be advised in consultation with your doctor

Wishing you best of health
