bump on forehead, eye swollen shut

Yesterday, my 30 yr old son who lives alone had a gate smack him in the forehead when working cattle.  He got a lump the size of a baseball, and then his eye swelled shut.  Now most of the left side of his face is black and blue.  He didn't sleep last night, as the bump hurt.  This morning, the vision in his other eye was blurred.  Now, at about 34 hours post accident, his other eye is swelling shut.  He is very hesitant to see a doctor, as he is self employed and has no insurance.  Does he need a doctor?
