Can u fix wide set eyes . I really can't look people in the eyes because my eyes are spaced apart is there any way to make them closer in ?

Usually yes: If you mean that one eye or both are misaligned such that the eyes don't point at the same target together (called exotropia, a form of strabismus) then yes.

Hi I have been feeling spaced out and lightheaded for 5 weeks solid with slight head pressure heavy eyes and very tired feeling.is this anxiety?

After all else: First, you need to rule out physical illness and unusual situational things. If there are none, than YES, it may be anxiety. But to move ahead from there, I'd urge a Psych Eval and follow-up CBT therapy to learn anxiety mgmt skills. Alone or w/ short-term medication, therapy is the best way to do it since it takes practice w/ coaching - a bit like a sport or technique. ...Read more

Can my eyes get smaller? It seems that as I grow older, my eyes are getting smaller...

No: Your eyes do not get smaller as you age, unless there has been catastrophic damage to an eye and you have lost most or all of your vision and the eye is not functional anymore. More likely, you may develop drooping of the eyelids (ptosis) or excess skin overhanging the upper eyelids (blepharochalasis) that makes your eyes appear smaller. ...Read more

There are various effective treatments for certain causes of dark eyes including the use of skin bleaching agents, dermal fillers, lasers and certain creams. Dark circles can be due to allergies, decrease in lower eyelid fat, hyperpigmentation and nutrition. ...Read more
