I got into a car accident at the beginning of

Patient : I got into a car accident at the beginning of February and severely blackened both my eyes ! One was almost swollen shut! It's nearly may and they are still slightly black. The one that was more severe is darker. Why is that and what can i do to make it go away?
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. Following a trauma to the eye, there can be a collection of blood and exudates causing a blackish appearance of external tissue around the eye. You will have to consult a doctor for treatment options like compressions, anti-inflammatory agents and other medications. It will take time for it to fade away spontaneously. Hope this helped. Regards
