I landed on my head and my knees kicked straight into my left eye. Will I likely get a bruise?

In brief: Not always

The eye bones almost certainly prevented significant eye damage.
But the force of the knee blow to the tissue over these bones could have broken capillaries and may cause some degree of bleeding leading to a black eye. You can help reduce this by ice packs for several days. Otherwise make up a good story to tell your friends about how it happened.
