In brief: Eye exam

Need to rule out other ocular injuries including any orbital fractures.
If the vision is good, no eye pressure problems, and the eye itself is intact, then blood should resolve without issue.

In brief: See an eye doctor

The best thing you can do for him is to rest the eye and have him sit upright.
He may have a hyphema or bleeding in the eye and his eye pressure may be elevated. He needs an eye exam by an ophthalmologist to rule out anything more serious.
