Head pain and slightly blurry vision

I posted this in the eye care page as well, but just looking for other opinions while I wait for my appointment with the ophthalmologist.  

About 2.5 weeks ago, I was assaulted. Hit in head multiple times and face. I had a couple of bumps on my forehead and left side of head directly above left ear. I had a black left eye and a bloody nose.

Everything was fine minus pain. After about 1.5 weeks post incident, my head has started hurting where the bumps are (assuming it’s the healing process). Also, my left eye has some pretty constant pain, feels like it’s my head as I move it, not the eyeball itself, and a slight degradation to the vision. It’s more apparent at night because it seems like the lights are distorted a little bit. I can still squint and see out of it. I have no peripheral shadowing, floaters, or loss of vision completely. No change in right eye.

Is it possible that the head pain healing, can cause eye pain, and that this will all go away within the next 2-4 weeks?  I had a phone consult with a nurse practitioner that specializes in neurology tell me that it could be the head swelling and nerves healing, and to give it some time. If it doesn’t get better within the next 2-4 weeks, then be seen. I can’t wait. Thanks.
