Many things: Eye pressure can be from many things, like dry eyes, and sinusitis. Seeing flashing lights is a possible indication of your vitreous detaching which can sometimes cause retinal tears or detachments. Please see your eye doctor as soon as you can.

Depends: Anyone with eye needs to see an ophthalmologist asap. On very rare incident if the injury changes the shape of cornea it may alter the refractive error or astigmatism which may cause improvement of the vision. The bottom line is the person needs to see her/his ophthalmologist.

I : I recommend that you seek the attention of an ophthalmologist (eye physician & surgeon). Direct injury to the head and around the eyes may cause potential manifestations, such as injury to the internal structures of the eye, fractures of bones that make up the eye socket, and glaucoma that may result in permanent loss of vision without medical attention.
