Possible hemorrhage: If there is no pain and no discharge, with normal vision, a likely diagnosis is hemorrhage in the subconjunctival space which looks dramatic but is usually not harmful to the eye and vision. Were both pupils huge? and did they react to light? If so, then the hemorrhage is even more likely.

Corneal abrasion: See an eye doctor. He should have antibiotic eye drops and have his eye patched for a couple of days. Healing does not leave any ill effects.
