purple bruise under eye

    
Asked by lisarose214 (Female; 44; UNITED STATES; None to be noted; Relevant drugs:None ) on Wed 02, Jun 2010 08:12am

I woke up this morning with a very purple bruise like area under my right eye. There was no trauma to the eye, at least when I was awake. It does not hurt but I do feel a little pressure in the area. Vision is fine. What could this be from?

Hi! A bruise could be due to a capillary bleed due to some pressure while sleeping. It could also be due to some infection. Also if there is a bruise elsewhere in the body and you are on birth control pills then that could be a cause. Please consult a dermatologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
