No phone call.

You need to see a doctor right away for this

You probably have a concussion but you may also have an orbital fracture around your eye

You need an exam, facial bone x-rays and possibly an MRI of your brain to check for any bleeding there

This really isn't a wait and see what happens scenario

Please let me know if you need any more information
