    Because of the direct heat, your eyes may get swollen. If you get hurt and feel pain around the eyes, the eyes nerves may get affected. In addition, the color of the surrounding eyes may be a little dark. You'd better go to see the doctor and have the check. Before this, you can use the cold cloth to cover on the eyes to release the symptom.

    As we know that, when blood and other fluids collect in the space around the eye, a black eye can occur. So in this way, you can know if you have got the black eye. We also say that it is often caused by the injury to the face or the head. Then swelling and dark discoloration can appear. To speed up the healing process of a black eye, you can try using ice to reduce the swelling caused by a black eye. In this way, the bruising will start fading in a few days. And you should know that you can not put a steak on a black eye, for it can possibly cause an eye infection. Then also you can search some information on the internet and see what foods you should avoid. This will help you too.
