Hit in boxing match, eye bluish, blur vision, face swollen. How to get cured?

I woke up this morning and I looked like I had just been in a boxing match with my opponent only hitting me on the right side of my face. It’s all swollen and I have a HUGE bag under my eye which is all bluish. It’s so big that it is partially in my field of vision! That side of my face feels swollen and tight too. I ve started on a course of Augmentin .

Dear user
you are having ecchymosis of eyelids because of collection of blood in the layers of the eyelids. It is also called as black eye. The treatment is mainly by cold pack application and oral analgesic drugs.
But the important thing is need to look for any other associated injury to the eyeball or to the orbit. This can be done by simple clinical examination or by tests like x ray or ct scan. Do consult your eye doctor for these examinations.
