dear banksj, hello.
your friend had a black eye due to the head injury. this takes few weeks to heal and go away by itself. but since it is again recurring after 5 weeks of injury along with headaches, I will suggest that head scan should be done -CT Scan or MRI. please take advice from a good neurosurgeon after showing him the reports. You can also consult Opthalmologist.
