Can a head hit cause weak vision?

i hit my head at work monday morning. was bent over and whenbi stood up i hit the top of my head on the corner of a dresser, roughly an inch behind the start of my hairline. about an hour later i started feeling pains shooting down the sides of my face and head. today just a dull headache however ive been extremely drowsy, feel like ive been in a haze my vision seems off, not blurry but it feels like my glasses keep sliding down my nose or are crooked, but they are on just fine. just a bad day after? hopefully not a concussion?

Severity of the injury needs to be assessed clinically.
Excessive sleepiness or persistent drowsiness with associated vision disturbances is not a good sign following injury.
Please consult a ER physician or a Neurosurgeon to decide the need for ct brain or imaging study.
