hello oonagh,
you fell on a hard wooden floor...due to which there mite be trauma leading to fracture of your cheekbone.... for pain take ibuepfrofen and get an xray skull done to confirm the extent of injury. its better to go to an opthalmologist to get your eyes checked in case for bleed and then an ent specialist.
take care
