Why Wearing Glasses Makes Eyes Sunken
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.

Check glasses: Your prescription may be off, have it checked. If you're over 40, then wearing single-vision distance correcting glasses may make near vision blurry.

Depends: There might be some improvement if you are hyperopic (need + (plus) lenses) in which case correction with the proper glasses or contacts could move the drifting eye outwards to match the other eye better.

Rebound dilation: This is a problem called rebound dilation. Clear eyes and visine contain drugs which constrict the blood vessels in the eye making the eye appear white. This works well if used once in a while. If used chronically, the blood vessels stop responding and stay dilated due to lack of oxygen. This results in redness. Stop using the drops and see your eye doctor. ...Read more
