In brief: Hollow

If you are tired, your eyes may appear sunken because a certain degree of dehydration may occur. Also, glasses for nearsightedness tend to make the eyes look smaller. If your eyes are dry, your images may blur and seem less distinct.

In brief: That depends...

If you are wearing old glasses and haven't had your prescription updated, you may be straining and squinting.
This can over a period of years give the impression of shrunken or hollow eyes. Have your eyes and glasses checked, and it may solve your problem.
