Black Eye Diagnosis
For most black eyes, a basic physical examination is all that is required.
The doctor asks about the facts in regard to the injury and looks for associated injuries or symptoms.
The basic physical examination includes checking the patient's vision, shining a light into the eyes to look at the pupils and inside the eye itself for any injury, testing the motion of the eye (following the doctor's finger with the eyes), and examining the facial bones around the eye.
Depending on what is found, the doctor may perform additional testing.
