Severe blow to the head can cause a bruise around the eye (Black eye).
There can be injury to the optic nerve ( traumatic optic neuropathy) which can cause reduction in vision.
Injury to the optic tract/radiation/occipital cortex ( are part of the visual pathways which are essential for normal vision), can result in visual field defects.
If the injury to the head had involved the eye too, then there can be a possibility of macular edema ( fluid build up in the central part of the retina).
There can be other eye signs of head injury such as pupil abnormalities, ocular nerve paralysis.
Are you there?
