HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR BLACK EYE
Red, blue or purple marks called bruises on the skin around the eye by a fall or blow are called black eyes. Older people develops this condition very easily because the skin capillaries becomes more fragile with age
Causes- Bruises occur when any impact damages tiny blood vessels , capillaries around the skin , causing them to leak blood in to the surrounding tissues.

Look for blood. If you see it in the white or colored parts of the eye, seek urgent care by an eye specialist (ophthalmologist).
Seek medical care immediately if you have vision problems (double vision, blurring), severe pain, bruising around both eyes, or bleeding in an eye or from the nose.
Apply warm-hot compresses. This may be helpful after a few days when the swelling has stabilized. Repeat several times a day for a day or two
