Dark circles: found on the periorbital area (the skin surrounding the eye) is primarily caused by capillary leakage & permeability, red blood cells leak and stain the skin leaving a darker pigmented appearance. This normally resolved without medical intervention.

Associated Injuries: If you have any symptoms related to the vision (e.g. reduced vision, or double vision) this needs to be assessed by a doctor to rule out other associated injuries of the face.
