Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
It is common for the bags under your eyes to suddenly get to the point that they become more noticeable. And, like many other things in life, once you notice something, be it a defect on the wall in your house or something on your body you pay more attention to it.
It sounds like you have orbital fat prolapse. This is a benign condition.
With age the thin, tough membrane (orbital septum) that keeps the normal fat pad in place behind your eye becomes weak and tears. When this happens you start to notice the swelling, or bags, under your eyes. It is nothing to worry about.
The only way to treat this problem is with surgery, called a blepharoplasty. Many times it can be done in a procedure room in the ophthalmologist’s office. This is where I do the majority of cases myself.
As may have already learned, the reason there are so many creams and lotions saying that they can fix this issue is that none of them really work.....
I doubt that this a symptom of something serious at this point, but the best way to be sure is to have a complete examination by an ophthalmologist.
Does this make sense to you?
Ok, that makes sense! Especially the cream and lotion thing.....But I will make an appointment sometime to make sure. Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I know it is not some kidney thing (someone told me that it could be kidney related so I became worried)
If it was a kidney thing I'd expect you to have a lot more symptoms......I think you'll be ok :)
