hematoma under my left eye

I went into the shower when i came out and dryed off I looked in the mirror and it looks like someone punched me in the eye. Under my left eye it looks black and blue like a bruise. It was like a popped a blood vessel but outside of my eye. the swollen went down but it still is bruised. I did not get hit in the eye .If you could maybe help me out .I thought maybe it was my blood pressure. Thank you

There are many possible causes: coughing, lifting, straining, being on medications that make you bleed or bruise easily such as steroids, heparin, coumadin, etc.

If its just this once probably not to worry. If keeps reoccuring see an ophthalmologist.
