Black Eye

My son has had a black eye since he was about 14 years old. He is now 21. Along with the discoloration or black eye there is a little bit of swelling. There has been no change in the appearance or sweeling all these years.

When he was younger I took hime to a regular doctor who referred him to an optimologist. They did an x-ray of his sinuses and found nothing to be wrong. They also found that he does not have a blocked tear duct.

Because of this chronic black eye he of course does not look directly into a camera, he always looks to the side so that the black eye does not show.

I am wondering if anyone has this same thing or if there is anyone who can put me in the right direction to find out what the problem is and hopefully get rid of it.

Thank you in advance for any help.
