Black Eye Directory
A black eye is a bruise to the eye that is often caused by trauma or injury to the eyes or another part of the face. Though sometimes a black eye goes away on its own, any eye bruises or swelling should be seen by a doctor to be sure no serious skull or eye injury has occurred. Applying ice or something very cold to the eye to reduce swelling is the main black eye treatment.
