Good Day
It must have been mild conjunctivitis due to the trauma. You need to watch for any changes in vision, headaches, appearance of blackish discolouration of the skin and swelling around the eyes. If this happens, visit the ER immediately. You are fine for now. Drink plenty of water and eat healthy.Don't put ice directly to the eye as that can lead to infection. Use a bag of frozen peas wrapped in 1-2 layers of cloth applied for 10 seconds at a time for 5-6 times a day.
