Danger Signs of Black Eye:

  • Blurred vision
  • Pain in your eye
  • Specks or floaters in your vision
  • If normal light hurts your eyes

Black Eye Treatment:

  • Don't take any aspirin based pain-killers as they thin your blood making the black eye take longer to heal. Try Acetaminophen for pain instead.
  • Eat pineapple and papaya three times a day. Enzymes in the fruit can soften your bruise and make it easier heal.
  • Use an ice pack around your eye. This helps to reduce swelling.
  • Try using concealer makeup to hide the black eye until it's gone. Dermablend is one such product sold without a prescription.

Remember, if you're not sure, let your doctor take a peek at it champ.
