    Hey guys,

    I took a shot to the eye and its swollen up, anyone know how I can get it down quicker?

    I've taken some anti-inflammatories and have been icing it, seems to help a bit, was considering draining it - is that a good idea?

    Just keep iceing it, and stay away from anything that will thin your blood. Such as alcohol, salt and so forth.

    Apparently I shouldnt be taking aspirin as it increases the bleeding? My one half of my eye is completely red from blood, any one know how I can get it back to normal fast? i have work in a few days.
