Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Black eye. Close-up of a black eye in an elderly woman. Black eyes are caused by injuries to the face which damage small blood vessels in the skin around the eyes. The dramatic appearance is caused by blood collecting in the loose, transparent tissue under the eye. As the blood breaks down its colour changes from red and black to blue and green, before fading. Black eyes are usually left untreated to heal naturally, although a cold compress may help to relieve discomfort. This woman suffered her injury as a result of a fall.
