Did you sustain trauma to the eye? Thanks.

I am not sure what you mean by trauma to the eye? I hit my forehead which has a bump and scrape, but I didn't hit my eye.

Hello,

It appears Dr. Riaz is currently away. The bruising and swelling will resolve on it's own over the next 1-2 weeks as the tissue heals. Unfortunately, there is nothing else that can be done to make it go away faster. Ice helps reduce swelling in the first 24 hours away, but not as useful later on. You can continue to use cool compresses and artificial tears to help ease any discomfort.

If the swelling or pain is worsening or you have a decrease in vision, I'd recommend you see your doctor right away for an evaluation.
