Dark circles in eyes: There are many causes for circles under eyes to occur: racial, occupational sun exposure, certain glaucoma medications, fatigue, insomnia and the list goes on. Some circles will subside if the cause is a temporary one and is removed.. In some cases a lower blepharoplasty ( lid tuck ), will improve the appearance as the prominent orbital fat is also removed. Cosmetic creams work not as they claim.

Dark Circles: Circles under eye can be due to: allergy "allergic shiners", fatigue, genetic variation, aging. Lower lid skin is very thin so blood vessels under skin can make area look dark. Topical creams/fillers can help hide circles: only mask condition with no cure. What helps: drink 8 cups water/day, sunblock, hat, enough rest; avoid rubbing; makeup; facial plastic surgery when severe; allergist can help.
