How do I make this very noticeable vien under my left eye go away? Will it go by itself? People always ask me did I get punched in the eye :(

ProbablyWon'tGoAway: You should go to a plastic/cosmetic surgeon who will be able to advise you(like maybe use a laser,thermal device or other form of vein removal).Not cheap. Makeup is cheaper and justifiable in your case. And in response to those questions,say"yes, I got punched in the eye,but the other guy is unconscious and in the hospital. You gotta problem with that?"-or-"Yeah, you want one?"or"No, it's a tumor. ...Read more

I was punched in the eye two weeks ago my swellness went down but my eye still red in the corner but i can see very clear how do I treat this?

I was punched in the eye two weeks ago my swellness went down but my eye still red in the corner but i can see very clear how do I treat this?

Observation.: If your vision is unchanged and the swelling is getting better, this sounds like a residual hemorrhage under the membrane that covers the sclera or white part of the eye. It should get better over the next week or two and may get yellow first as the blood breaks down to hemoglobin. If there is no improvement in the next couple of weeks, get it checked by an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Generally, which contacts are the best and what would happen if I got punched or kicked in the eye with them?

Generally, which contacts are the best and what would happen if I got punched or kicked in the eye with them?

Ouch!: There is no specific "best" contact lens; some fit better than others, depending on your eye's shape. Some feel better due to the level of moisture that they allow, as well as their breathability. None will be good if you get hit in the eye. At best, the eye will be damaged by the punch or kick alone. At worst, the contact can be torn and cause an abrasion. Either way, try not to get hit! ...Read more
