Black eye. Man suffering from a black eye (periorbital bruising). The skin around the eye is very thin and is easily damaged. A direct blow can rupture the many small blood vessels there, causing blood to leak and pool beneath the skin. This leads to the purple-red colour of a bruise. A cold compress applied to the bruising can reduce the pain and swelling. This four-day-old black eye resulted from an assault.
