Fell down, struck forehead. Bruised eyes, orbital area puffy, suggestions?

Good Morning:

Saturday night I fell down the stairs at my home. I struck my forehead quite hard. The following day my left eye started bruising and I ultimately got a black eye. On Monday, the right eye turned black as well. I now have two black eyes. I woke up this morning, Tuesday and the orbital area under both eyes is puffy. is this normal?

It's normal. The blood from the bruise in forehead in just gravitating down. But you might need some anti-inflammatory drugs to be prescribed to settle that.
I hope you already had an X-ray/ CT scan done to rule out any kind of unnoticed fracture.... hope you didn't lose consciousness or vomited or have any headache.
