I used dermalogica retinol eyecream at nite.  Dark circles become darker and pigmentation appears at corner of eyes.  Why ? Will it be back to normal?

Irritant reaction.: Retinol (a vitamin a derivative) is a natural skin irritant and irritated skin sometimes darkens, especially in sensitive areas (such as around the eyes). It should go back to normal, but it will take awhile. Apply a good sunscreen lotion to your face every day, as sunlight will delay resolution. ...Read more

Lots of floaters after eye infection.But mine seem to be large and chang their shape as i move eyes back an forth.Do floater stretch out in a line?

Floaters may be : Either linear or circular or both. Their physical location and size and shape in large part determine the effects that they have in a person. It is always best to have the eye examined when there are new floaters since retinal tears frequently occur at the same time. If there is a tear in the retina, it may progress to a detachment without treatment. ...Read more

Why overnight would i see a bunch of dark and clear strands of floaters in both eyes. 2 eye doctors looked at them and said my eyes are fine.

Why overnight would i see a bunch of dark and clear strands of floaters in both eyes. 2 eye doctors looked at them and said my eyes are fine.

They are looking at: your retina, back of your eye to make sure you don't have retinal/macular tears/posterior vitreal detachment, in which the first sign can be a veil of floaters. When you're sleeping the floaters always go to the lowest spot, and when you sit up and awaken, they should float out of your visual axis (your view). So, if 2 eye doctors have cleared you, especially an ophthalmologist, you should be safe ...Read more

It helps for me!: I can tell you that in my case at the age of 54, whenever I have noticed dark sunken eyes as a result of lack of sleep then, either a little cat nap or just ditching in the back room for a good 8 to 10 hours with the world turned off does my eyes a lot of good! Try it... You'll SEE! Of course, perhaps a better question is "why aren't you getting enough sleep?" ...Read more

Do molars need to make direct contact on top of each other? Feel bottom molars moved in too much and also increased wear into enamel due to pressures

Occlusion: While teeth are meant to occlude with each other and it would be nice if everyone had an 'ideal' occlusion (bite), that seldom exists, even after orthodontic treatment. There is always wear and tear on the teeth. Two issues can cause excessive wear- malpositioned (crooked) teeth and habits such as bruxism. See your dentist to determine what if anything should\can be done for you. ...Read more

Can sleeping with contacts in make the whites of your eyes start to turn yellow?

Can sleeping with contacts in make the whites of your eyes start to turn yellow?

No: The whites of the eyes may appear less white if you over-wear contacts. This occurs when the lenses starve the eye of oxygen and irritate the surface skin. Microscopic blood vessels become inflamed and the eye looks less white. Natural yellowing of the eyes usually occurs with age and is not affected by contact lens wear, except as mentioned above. ...Read more
