    Well, first, you should know how the black eyes occur. Generally speaking, according to some experts, when blood and other fluids collect in the space around the eye, a black eye can occur. So in this way, you will find that you have got the black eye. In some cases, injury can lead to black eyes, and also lead to swelling and dark discoloration around your eyes. To treat 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. From many people's opinion, warm compress will also be effective for your black eyes, for they can make your blood flow smoothly. So you can just put a warm cloth on your eyes.

    The black eye is a relatively common result of injury to the face or the head. It occurs when blood and other fluids collect in the space around the eye, swelling and dark discoloration. In order to remove the black eyes, you can put ice bags on your eyes for 20 minutes intervals starting as soon as possible after you are injured and repeating it every few hours for the first 24 hours. At the same time, you can add vitamin C to your diet to speed healing. Or you can boost enzymes from pineapple and papaya to treat the black eye. On the contrary, you should not intake aspirin because it thins the blood and slows the clotting process naturally.

    Well, firstly, you'd better use ice or a cloth immersed in icy water and wrung out. Secondly, you can reduce swelling and constricting blood vessels by taking something cold to a black eye. This two ways can stop the bleeding below the skin in turn. In order to prevent damage to the skin around your eye from the ice, it is essencial to make a crushed ice pack or grab a package of frozen vegetables and apply the compress to the affected area for 10 minutes at a time (10 minutes off). Meanwhile putting pressure on the swollen eye or trying to force it open are also benefit for curing black eye. But you need keeping in mind that no further injury on your eyes.
