Black Eye Healing Time Lapse Video
This is what a black eye looks like as it heals over 16 days. The cut needed 6 stitches and luckily after a trip to the emergency room with the help of good insurance the wound was given first aid. Hot heat and compresses helped with the swelling.
Just like a bad bruise the swelling around a black eye gradually decreases. Since the skin around the eye is generally fat, it is an ideal area for fluid to form after an impact. Black eyes can often result in blurry vision, swelling to the face, pain and headaches.
Some of the best ways to get rid of a black eye is to apply an ice pack to reduce swelling. Try a warm compress and take plenty of Vitamin C.
