Take an ibuprofen tablet to help reduce some swelling first of all. If you must lay down, prop your head up to allow swelling to not accumulate in this area as much.

Take an ice pack, wrap it in a thin cloth (like a washcloth), and hold it on your bruised eye for a full 15 minutes.

Remove the ice pack and let the area warm up slowly (do not apply anything warm, let your body do the warming itself) by very lightly massaging around the bruised part of your eye. Do not press hard and do not press on your eye. Light, circular motions until the skin is warm again. If you can, do this for a full 15 minutes. Try not to press much on the bruised part itself until some of the discoloration starts to go away. You want to help the fresh blood remove the dead blood that has gathered at the surface of the injury site so you need to help the circulation process. Running your fingers LIGHTLY over the bruise also helps to get your blood circulating properly in that area again--but be GENTLE.

Once the area is warm and body-temperature again (about 30 minutes after you removed the ice pack), repeat the above ice/warm-up/massage technique.

You can repeat this process all day, every day, until the bruising diminishes.

I once removed a dark bruise on my body in 2 days following this method. Of course, the bruise was not on my face, but it was fresh and very prominent.

Be patient with the bruise. Don't press hard on it, take your vitamins as usual to help the body heal, and stay hydrated with pure, clean water. You'd be surprised at how fast the healing process is when you're taking care of your body. So, make sure you take care of it so you can have a speedy recovery from the injury.
