How to get rid of a Black Eye

Whenever there is a sharp blow to the body, capillaries (the little blood vessels by the skin’s surface) may break causing the blood to leak into the surrounding tissues and collect at the affected area. The result of such a scenario is blood leaking into the top layer of skin, resulting in the affected area becoming purple in color. When this occurs around the eye, this becomes known as a black eye. This bruising is also known as a contusion.
