I fell and skinned my arm and hit my head on pavement. I had a large knot on my head just above my temple. I was wearing my glasses at the time I fell. Strangely my eye did not start to blacken until four days after the injury. By the fifth day my eye was entirely black. It is not swollen just very black all around the eye.

I am in good health. I do take Pradaxa because of my age. One of my eyes turned black (as in a shiner)! It went away after a week. I did nothing to cause it. Today, I have a black eye again.
