It was the end of the year when my neighbour was playing with his son and got accidentally kicked in his eye. I did not know about it, but I met him the next evening. He was wearing sunglasses which caught my attention. I asked what happened and he showed me the injury to his eye. The eye was purple-red and swollen to the extent he could not open it. He managed to get to A&E to be checked.
He came back with an all clear from eye damage nor any other serious issue. No medication was given. He was complaining about pain and inability to open his eye at all. I gave him Arnica 200C and told him to sip the remedy diluted in the bottle of water until symptoms improved.
The progress of healing can be seen on the photos below. Day 7 was a day when his daughter was born, and he was able to open his eye. The picture was taken a few hours after her birth. He was thrilled as his eye did not show any signs of swelling, nor pain, and he did not look like a pirate on the big day.
There was still a bit of bruise on the upper eyelid, but according to my neighbour, he was fine. He could not believe how quickly the remedy worked. What a great end to a case of a black eye. I felt very happy that the first day as a daddy went for him without any discomfort and full sight restoration.
