Hello,
Thank you for the question.I am Dr.A.S.Desai and I look forward to assisting you .
The tiny capillaries in the skin around the eyes are fragile and susceptible to rupture with minimal trauma to the eye or forehead or spontaneously in those with raised blood pressure. You can apply ice packs or cool compresses to the affected eye and expect improvement by 1 to 2 weeks. The color of the skin is likely to change from dark red to purple to greenish before it subsides completely.
