Glasses Makes Eyes Sunken Swollen
No: Not at all.Get a more detailed answer ›
May be an illusion: Wearing glasses will not physically change the eyes, it just optically corrects the focusing of the image so that it is clear to the eye. Wearing nearsighted glasses (myopia) can give the illusion that the eyes appear to be smaller and possibly sunken back, while farsighted glasses (like reading glasses) make the eyes look larger. This is a magnification effect based on the power of the lens.
Glasses: Does wearing glasses make eyes sunken? If yes, is it fixable or permanent? ANS: No.
No effect: The wearing of eyeglasses will have no effect on the eye position either outward or inward.
21 yrs old, having sunken eyes with dark circles for past 2 yrs, not hereditary, using glasses for past 3 yrs, plz tell me possible cause and remedy?
Allergic rhinitis?: You get sunken eyes with dark circles if you don't get enough sleep, are exhausted and are not well hydrated. But if you feel normal, and still have those symptoms, do you also have runny nose, sneezing in the morning and at other times, without feeling sick? If so, you may have allergic rhinitis (or hay fever). See your doctor who can prescribe effective medicines.
Why does my right eye get swollen 10 min after waking up. It happens every day. I need to wear my glasses or else I feel a lot of pressure on my eye.
I was poked in the eye a couple days ago and it bruised fast. I wear contacts and glasses but today it's red swollen and watering. What is wrong?
Depends: Was the poke to the skin and bone around the eye or to the eye itself.? Is your vision ok? Is your eye light sensitive? If the eye is involved in any way, it is best to either see an er doctor or better yet an ophthalmologist to make sure there is nothing serious out of sorts inside your eye.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm an 18 yr old female & I've been wearing glasses for 8 years. My eye look sunken in, puffy and dark circles all around with indentation marks at the sides of my nose. Is there a natural way to fix this?
Allergic shiners?: Dark circles and puffy eyes may be a sign of allergies see an allergist for help.
Infection or sinus: Swelling under the eye is usually from an infection of the eyelids (tenderness and redness also), an allergy type problem of the eye or skin (usually itching also), orbital inflammation (pain especially with eye movement), or sinus disease. Sleeping with the head elevated and ice may help reduce the swelling. If it persists, you may need an exam to diagnosis the underlying problem.
Sunglasses needed: Photograys can not replace sunglasses in strong light conditions - they are not usually dark enough and allow light into the periphery (from both front and sides). The photogrey effect can also be canceled by your windshield tinting - leaving you unprotected from bright light in the car. Some artificial lighting also triggers the photogrey effect indoors, making it difficult to see.See 1 more doctor answer
If the glasses: Are causing eyestrain after 2 wks of trying to wear them, then go back to the optician that made them first. Have them check to see if they were made properly (correct power and optical centration) then if needed, return to the prescribing doctor for a glasses prescription check.
Depends: The cost of glasses depends on the type, quality and prescription of the lenses and the type and quality of the frames. See a reputable optician and talk to him about it. If cost is a factor, be sure to tell him up front and he can guide you.
No: Wearing glasses allows you to see better. It does not change the eyes in any way.
They shouldn't: Many times people have various symptoms with new glasses. Most of the time these go away with adaptation. Try to wear only the new glasses. If you cannot, return to the place you purchased them.
Dry Eye: Blinking spreads the tear film across the cornea. Some people when they read and concentrate inhibit their normal blink reflex and the tear film breaks down causing dry spots on the cornea which becomes irritated and the eyes start to burn. Other activities that seem to elicit the same phenomena are driving and working on a computer. Frequently the eyes will begin to reflexively tear in response.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Glasses have no effect on the eyes.
Forever: You shouldn't need a "rest". When your glasses are on you'll see better. When they're off, you'll see worse. You shouldn't feel the need to give your eyes a rest if they are prescribed properly.
