Severe eye poke. Why did I go blank? Why did I have redness and swelling?

I got a pretty severe eye poke (right eye) playing basketball two nights ago. The vision in that eye went black for a few seconds before it came back. My eye is swollen to the point where my eye only opens halfway on its own. I wake up and there is additional pus each morning. The swollen eye has redness on the right side of the eye. I have been icing the eye to reduce swollenness the past two nights.

Hi, Brlesher,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having bad injury in your eye giving rise to sub conjunctival hemorrhage with infection.
Consult Ophthalmologist as there might injury to internal structure as well.
You require antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicines.
Mean while put antibiotic eye drops every 2-3 hourly.
Ok and bye.
