Brief Answer:
Get detailed eye examination

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

Any transient visual impairment due to pressure lasts very short while. Please get detailed retinal examination tomorrow as there may be a coincidence and there may be some other issue. As you are a young man the possibility of a disease process are remote but we have to have detailed eye examination with emphasis on retinal examination.
