Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today. I am an ophthalmologist
If you are otherwise healthy the most likely cause of your condition is 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.
I suggest you see your ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam.
Does this make sense to you?
