Got hit in the eye, now seeing flashes of light on the sides

I got hit with a soccer ball on the eye, during a game. I decided to continue to play. I had not noticed anything different in my vision throughout rest of the game. While walking back to my car, I started to notice a bright flash of light on the peripheral views of that eye. Any movement of the eye going right to left or visa versa the light shows. It is semi-circle in shape.

What is causing this and is this something serious that needs a doctors attention?

See an opthamologist ASAP. Rule out "detached retina". Yes. It needs a doctors immediate attention for evaluation.
