Dr. Rick :

Hi. I will be happy to help you today.

Dr. Rick :

No. Tired, blank looking eyes would not normally be associated with Fuch's corneal dystrophy

Dr. Rick :

It is possible that you have laxity of your orbital septum. This would allow the normal adipose tissue around your eyes to push forward, causing tired, baggy looking eyes that tend to have a blank-like look to them. This would be very common in a person 80 years of age.

The chat system froze up....I was unable to type, so I switched to Q&A

A complete examination by an ophthalmologist would be able to rule out less common causes for your symptoms and provide you with treatment options.

I hope this has answered your question. Have a great holiday season.
