How long does it take for a black eye to form as well as other eye injuries?

Up to 1 or 2 days

Eyes
Black eyes may occur quickly with a direct impact to the eye. This happens because there is some bleeding in the soft areas around the eye that cause the darker color. Other injuries that fracture bones like facial and skull fractures bleed more slowly, and it may take a day or two before the black eye appears.

How long does it take for an eye infection to heal totally?

It depends

Open-uri20120707-11894-czv9p7
Many eye infections are self limiting and clear up in 7-10 days. However there are infections that are deeply seated in the meibomian glands of the lid or are from chronic bacterial colonization of the skin. These can take months to clear up and can be very persistent.

How long will it take for garamycin ophtmalic drops to clear up an eye infection?

A week or less

Eyes
Garamycin is not used much by ophthalmologists any longer for "pinkeye", or conjunctivitis. Nevertheless, it is a reasonable choice for straightforward bacterial conjunctivitis. If the signs of infection, i.e. redness, tearing, discharge, matted eyelid, etc. are not resolved within a week the affected person should see an ophthalmologist as a stronger medication may be required.
