Avatar m tn Hi, I have very severe dark circles around my eyes! It's getting worst and worst, i'm really self-conscious about it and i notice people are always giving me weird looks. I have so many health problems in my life, skin, bone, etc, you name it, i have it. I have been battling these illness my entire life, it's like i am born to battle illness.
Avatar n tn Beneath my eyes, there are two ring-like depressions that I have read to be a deformity that can only be removed by laser surgery. Besides that, the space under my right eye is a very visible bluish-white... predominantly white with a blue tinge. My left eye, however, is a noticeably dark brown. I don't know what to do about this. They have never gone away or improved over the many years I've had them. I have tried several creams but none of them have worked.
Avatar n tn What about surgery procedures? A Laser procedure to rejuvenate the blood vessels under the skin to erase the purple color? Could I have fat injected under the eyes to give a fuller look and to hide the blood vessels from being seen through the skin? Bleaching? What have you experienced yourself? Please help. Any thoughts and/or advice on what could be done to rid of my dark circles would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn If you're still very unhappy, you could consult either a plastic surgeon or an ophthalmologist who specializes in plastic surgery about removing the bags under your eyes. This would involve an outpatient procedure not covered by your insurance. A cosmetic dermatologist might be able to reduce your dark circles with laser treatment.
Avatar n tn thanks so much for your reply! Yes, mine is the worst after stepping out of the shower, too! It almost looks like they "glow" they are so white in contrast to the rest of my face, which although not perfectly pigmented, is at least "normally" pigmented in contrast. Can I just vent for a moment? I get SOOOO sick of typing in search terms on the net and getting results for "dark circles under the eyes", damn I would take THOSE any old day over THIS!
Avatar n tn ),hyperpigmentation (have you applied any products under your eyes prior to the dark circles?),allergies and also heredity. Have you any of these? Management of the dark circles depends on what the underlying cause is.You may discuss with your dermatologist the advantages of laser therapy and thermage for eradicating the dark circles. In extreme cases, cosmetic surgery may help (brow lift). Keep us posted for anything.
Avatar m tn On January 4 2011 I had an IPL laser treatment done under my eyes to help reduce dark circles, the skin is very thin due to damage from sun exposure. The next day, my left eye started twitching on the bottom corner lid of the eye near the nose. I ignored it and attributed it to stress, but after a month with no let up I called my dermatologist and was assured these non ablative lasers cannot penetrate deeply enough to cause any nerve damage. So I let it go.
Avatar m tn I've seen a local dermatologist for an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment to reduce both the redness of the scar and the dark circle under my left eye. I plan on seeing him again and am considering a treatment called Deep FX in case I'm not satisfied with IPL. I just wanted to see some opinions on this and also if there is anything else I should be concerned about that might be causing the dark circle under my eye.
Avatar f tn i know what u can do to erase the look of them (not sure on curing it just yet still in progress myself) first let me tell u about myself i just turned 22 one day while plucking my eyebrows i noticed i looked...old! i had dark lines extending below and out the inner corners of my eyes like upside down windshield wiper blades..i thought it was dark circles? but looking closer i pulled my skin and...bumps!
Avatar n tn I have posted before under "Restor/ReZoom/Monofocal" I'm 45, cataracts in both eyes - the left non-dominant eye was worse. For those wrestling with the decision of what Type of IOL, I'll offer you my experience with my decision to go monofocal. I had the left-eye cataract surgery yesterday, and met with the doctor this morning. I finally chose the monofocal over the rezoom / restor options. My doctor went with the AMO Tecnis foldable acrylic IOL ZA9003. Diopter 17.5.
Avatar n tn As anything else - lip sticks of glosses give me little sores on my lips and cause them to puff up and get little scabs and peel contantly - i also get dry patches under my eyes and eye lids. When I visited a doctor they told me I may have an allergy to nail polish and an ingrediant in lip glosses/balms its also happens when I were nail polish. After removing it it usually clears up within a week.
Avatar m tn I wish the surgeon would of had someone tell me these are things gs that can possibly happen, because it is scarey when it is your eye/vision on the line. I asked the discharge Nurse about the dark circles at surgery center, she knew nothing and discharged me anyway.. Thank good for the internet. :). How is your eye today?
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar n tn ( What do you think I should do? My lotion doesn't work on these. I have never had something like this happen before. Please help!!!! Do you think tea bags may work on the under eyes?
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
233488 tn?1310696703 Dry eyes are one of the most common conditions seen in the practice of ophthalmology. Collectively dry eyes probably cause more eye discomfort and irritation than any other condition. The term “dry eyes” will never go way but it’s misleading. Eye MD ophthalmologists now call this “ocular surface disorder” (OSD) and sometimes “tears dysfunction syndrome.” There are two forms of the problem.

Avatar n tn Xalatan is an excellent drop but causes redness and irritation, long dark lashes and often dark circles under the eyes. Side effects (other than the lashes and dark circles) usually improve over the next few weeks. Use artifical tears like gental or thera tears every few hours and at bedtime to help the symptoms. Try to take the Xalatan about 30 minutes before bedtime and tear drops at bedtime.
Avatar n tn It is likely not hyperpigmentation as I have those under my eyes (underye circles) and the hue is not the same (dark-reddish/violet vs brownish and somewhat violet). Anyway, I want to get rid of them. They alone may have been passable for self-confidence but together with undereye circles make up a large dark pattern on my face. Can spend on laser or similar treatments but won't go as far as incision-type surgery. Please help me with this issue I've had for as long as I can remember.
Avatar m tn While the diagnosis is based on a photograph this could be at best an opinion. Do consult your doc. Also while I do not advocate Dermabration to all, this procedure is also done on the nose in many conditions like acne scarring,Rhynophyma,nasal reconstruction,and as a part of cosmetic surgery on the nose. References do maintain the role of dermabration in selected cases but complications are there for every procedure! Best wishes.
Avatar f tn But she would not listen about getting someone experienced - she just wanted someone close and cheap. I had dark circles under my eyes a lot too. Weird about the red ears and hands. At least it is not your neck LOL.
Avatar m tn It is my understanding and I stand to be corrected that your vision will stay the same this is a man made lense that will not change as far as the vision in it--of course there's the rare chance of anything, but the only thing I've been told that I may have to have some laser (Yag) done for scar tissue other than that these are now my new eyes--I also thought it was too good to be true to be able to see--the day after my first eye was done I kept covering the old eye and using my new one to see
Avatar f tn The most troubling thing is white text on a dark background. The letters distort into a shadow like effect. Day 2 after the surgery, this was subtle now it really has a shadow. It seems this goes with the glare getting worse. I assume I just want to know how it will turn out. The floaters are predominantly white blood cells and I assume they will be absorbed. I had full FOV and the floaters freaked me out.
Avatar m tn He said I did not have to do both eyes now, but having the same lens in both eye would make neuro-adaptation easier and vision better. - He offered laser assisted surgery for removal of natural lens. Price was $1000 more and said refractive outcome was the same if I did laser assisted or standard phacoemulsification. He said laser is 'possibly' less traumatic on the eye. He didn't pressure one way or the other and said think about it and let us know a few days before what you decide.
Avatar m tn In terms of the way ophthalmologists, optometrists and visual scientiests define stereopsis (depth perception) you cannot have full 3-D depth perception without two eyes being pointed at the same thing, relatively good visual acuity and a occipital lobe that can process the information and create depth perception. real surgery done with both eyes with or without glasses or loupes is uses 3D vision so does operating through a microscope. Flat screen high resolution surgery is not 3D surgery.
Avatar n tn In March of 2004 I had cataract surgery (in both eyes - 2 months apart) and had restor lens implanted in each eye. My reading & distance vision is excellent. My mid-range is not good and I wear glasses to work on my computer which is not an inconvenience. Over the past several months I have experienced a situation where my head turns to the left and if I cover one eye the situation is relieved. Could this be a reaction to double vision (my optometrist says I have slight double vision)?
Avatar n tn i have the same problem and iam only 16i have it dark in between the legs....and under my arms and in back of my neck ...i started to wonder if mabey i had some sort of vaginal infection or std .[[although iam a virgen]]=[[becouse of that ]].when i discoverd a pimple round and not able to be poped ...iam so embaraced....becouse i cant realii wear bathing suites or modellor enything i cant raise my hand..
Avatar n tn ) If the light source is horizontal, I get the soft halo effect. However, if the light source is vertical, I get large circles around the light source with spokes in them. I do not know if people that do not have astigmatism see this as I do. The circles are more annoying to me than the halos. However, I have adjusted to them, (for the most part), and am hoping they will decrease when I have my other eye done. I feel that for me, the advantages outweigh the lively night show.
Avatar f tn My doctor gives his patients a DVD of their surgery and on the DVD I see the concentric circles of the lens as it is being implanted unfolding in my eye. These are the only times that I have seen the circles of the lens.
