Please describe your experience with a black eye.

Comment from: JEFF4424, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: April 22

I fell out of bed and hit my eye in the corner on the pointy edge of my night stand. My eye is swollen and black, really sore and bloodshot, hurts if I move it sideways.

Without any warning all of a sudden a black eye appeared without any obvious reason. I"m wondering if extreme low humidity in the house could be a cause.
