There is no connection between sinusitis and black eyes directly, the only things that I can think about are:
A) Trivial unnoticed trauma / injury to the head/ eye during sleep
B) Severe straining while nose blowing leading to the rupture of blood vessels of the eye
In any case if there is no worsening the treatment remains symptomatic
with warm compresses, anti inflammatories if there si pain, it shoudl
resolve within a few days. If it recurs get investigated for the other
rare causes like bleeding disorders etc.
