    Well, first, you should know that bruised eyes can be a kind of inflammation in your eyes. And for many people, drinking and eye infection can just be big reasons which can just lead to bruised eyes. Also, it can be kind of annoying. To get rid of bruised eyes, you need to try some ways to assist the blood to flow easier in the area that has been bruised. According to some experts, cold compresses with ice can be helpful to reduce the swelling or inflammation in the area. Thus, the blood will flow and the vessels that were damaged will begin to heal. Anyway, just pay more attention to it.


    Take it easy, it is not a serious eye disease, bruised eyes appear due to an injury to the face rather than eye injury. You can apply ice bag or a clean towel with ice wrapped in it over your son's eyes for 20 minutes to decrease swelling by constricting blood vessels as well as inflammation and pain by cooling and soothing the ocular area. After a few days, you can apply heat to his bruised eyes with a warm clean towel to accelerate the healing process. Tell your son not to engage himself in athletic or fierce activities during this period to prevent the area from further injury and ask him to take more rest. If you find the situation does not move towards better, you then need to take your son to the hospital for an thorough examination. Wish your son recover soon.
