Do you have bruises on any other part of the body or ever had them in the past?

When you examine the white of the eye is it normal appearing?

Is your vision normal?

Are you on any medications or suffering from any medical condition?

Please let me know.

By far the most likely cause in your case seems to be a trauma to your forehead or around your eye somewhere. The trauma may have gone unnoticed. The medications that you have been taking and are currently taking should not cause a spontaneous appearance of a black eye. The black eye should go away with time, however I would recommend that if you are pretty sure that you did not have any trauma to your head or around the eyes that you consult your doctor to have your coagulation profile checked to see if your blood is clotting properly.
