It is a vital restorative process that among other things helps with memory consolidation, metabolic function, immune competence, and growth.

I get a good amount of sleep. Why do my eyes look tired?

I get a good amount of sleep. Why do my eyes look tired?

They only look it: What we see as tired eyes are often "puffy" eyelids that have dark circles under them. This can be the way your eyelids naturally look, or they could slowly take on this appearance over time. Excess eyelid skin, especially on the upper eyelids, can make the eyes appear more closed. There may be treatment options for this, so if it bothers you, consider meeting with an eye doctor to discuss it. ...Read more

I get a good amount of sleep, so why do my eyes look tired?

I get a good amount of sleep, so why do my eyes look tired?

Leaky blood vessels: The dark, heavy look to eyelids, especially lower eyelids, is often caused by collections of blood vessels. These vessels can be a little "leaky", causing fluid to collect under the skin, which in turn gives the dark circle appearance. After years, some individuals also develop increased pigmentation, which enhances the appearance. If this is a new appearance, see an eye doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

I have bags under my eyes, but I get enough sleep. What would be the cause of this?

Fluid or fat!: If the "bags" are present every day (not allergies) and go away after several hours, this is fluid, and eyelid surgery can improve, but not eliminate this tendency. Sleep slightly elevated to decrease this. If fat and loose skin, expert plastic surgery can reposition, remove, and tighten this up beautifully. See an abps-certified plastic surgeon for consultation and advice! ...Read more
