If it is a serious black eye, go to the doctor. He or she can give you a steroid pack that will heal it faster and also look at the eye itself to make sure it's okay. Lots of ice or frozen peas in a bag, on 20 minutes, off 20 minutes so the skin does not get injured by the cold ice. Hope this helps. Luke the others said, depends on how bad it is.

Well when my brother got a black eye (I swear it was an accident) it went away after two weeks but his wasn't very bad, so I'd say maybe 2 1/2 to 3. but remember to take care of it-put an ice-pack on it and treat it with medication if it gets bad enough.
