Why Do You See Stars When You Hit Your Head?

Answer

Seeing stars after you hit your head is normal. You see stars when you hit your head because the occipital lobe in the brain and the retina cooperate to give you the interpretation of what you see. The retina will first convert the light in front of you into chemical signal followed by electrical impulse before sending it to the occipital lobe.
