Black eyes


A black eye is a bruise around the eye. When an object hurts the eye, the force of the impact breaks delicate blood vessels in the eyelids and surrounding tissues. Blood gets collected under the skin and causes a black or blue discoloration in the eyelids and around the eye socket or in other words we can say that it makes the eye look black. As the skin around the eye is relatively thin and transparent compared to skin in other parts of the body, the black and blue color of a bruised eye may seem darker and more intense than bruises.

Fact of a black eye

Black eye has always been associated with fighting and violence. But this is not he only reason. Rather only few percent of eye injuries are caused by violent assaults. The main reason why there is discoloration of eyes is because of the contact of a blunt object like a baseball, a hammer, a rock or a piece of lumber. Most black eyes are superficial injuries that don't cause any permanent damage to the eye or to the tissues around it. When vision changes after a blow to the eye, it is a warning sign that the injury may be more than the bruise. The force of the blow may have fractured the delicate bones that form the eye socket, or the structure of the eye itself may be damaged.
