Thank you for posting your query.

As of now, the head injury seems to a mild one, and you need not worry.

Also, the swelling around your eye is reducing, that is a good sign.

Your current symptoms are minor, and they would settle down soon.

If you develop severe headache, repeated vomiting, double vision, drowsiness, fits, etc, then you should visit the hospital, otherwise there is no need.

Wishing you good health,
