Thanks for query,
This is an inflammation due to soft tissue injury.the fluid collected within eye lids cause your eye to close.
To confirm bone injury we need x-ray of bone.As such the chances of it is very less as the force applied is important to break the bone.
You need mild anti inflammatory medicine with pain killers.It takes at least 2 weeks to resolve.
