Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Black eye. Elderly woman with a black eye (periorbital bruising) and other facial bruising after a fall. She did not fracture any bones. Black eyes are caused by injuries that rupture small blood vessels in the skin near the eyes. The leaking blood collects in the loose transparent tissue under the eye, rapidly showing as red, purple and then nearly black bruising. Overtime the blood breaks down and the bruise fades. Black eyes are usually left to heal naturally, although a cold compress may help to relieve discomfort.
