If you have ever played sports like volleyball you know the pain of having a black eye. Not only is it painful, but the long lasting visual effects can be irritating to say the least.

Make up needs to be reapplied constantly and rather thick too in order to cover a black eye. Sometimes this effort doesn’t pay off at all. We have all probably had our grandmothers telling us to use raw red meats or something to that effect. This type of remedy does work in keeping the swelling down but does nothing for the color in the bruising itself.

There are different types of black eyes. Blunt force wounds caused when rounded objects impact the area of the eye or the eyeball, sharp punctures in the soft tissues around the eyes, and other trauma. The one thing they have in common is the bruising or the broken blood vessels underneath the dermis. In any case it is important to know when to go to the doctor and when to handle it yourself. If you can’t see, experience blurred vision or if the eyeball or ducts in the eye are bleeding, these would be clear indications of an emergency situation.
