What to do for a black eye?
If you child has received minor eye trauma from a fall, sporting accident or other cause, apply a cold compress for five to 10 minutes several times an hour. Do not put ice directly on the skin, instead wrap with a towel or sock. If pain ensues, give a proper dose of acetaminophen. Call your doctor if your child experiences any changes in vision, visible abnormalities to the eyeball, or drainage from the eye.
