It seems that you might be having some bleeding in the area around the eye. Could you give some more information regarding your question -

- since when are you having the black eye?

- is it painful?

- any injury to eye, forehead or head in the last few days?

- are you on any medicines?

- any similar discolouring on any other part of body?

- how did you hurt your neck? what treatment was given?

- any other symptoms like dizziness, headache etc?

- may I know your age and gender?

Regards
