I was wondering what do you do when you get hit in the eye?

I was wondering what do you do when you get hit in the eye?

That would need evaluation. So if it seems to be a bruise to the soft tissue around the eye, you can wait but if there is more evident damage, then see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

This , however, will not remove the blood that has already been leaked into the skin. Heat can be applied after a couple of days to speed the bruise resolution. Anecdotally, some people believe that rubbing pineapple on the area will speed things up. Go figure. ...Read more
