In manga and anime, a star in a single eye is an old symbol used when a character is hurt or shocked.

It's somewhat similar to the phrase "seeing stars," which in western cartoons is depicted as stars orbiting the character's head. Similarly, in anime, when they're seeing everything spinning, their eyes are drawn as spirals.

Note that having stars in both eyes typically means the character is dreaming of or yearning for something instead.
