Eye bags and wrinkles are natural, age-related changes which affect the skin around the eyes. Eye bags appear beneath the eye, as the lower lid develops stretched, sagging skin. When wrinkles emerge around the eye, they often fan outwards from the outer eye, which many people refer to as crow’s feet. Many patients find these concerns bothersome, however they reassuringly pose no risk to your ocular health and vision. If you find their appearance troubling, Laser Vision ophthalmologists can provide some minor, non-invasive treatments to minimise their appearance.
What are the Symptoms?
What are the Causes?
The skin of the eyelids and surrounding orbit will naturally lose elasticity with time as levels of collagen and elastin decline. At the same time, the suborbicularis oculi fat or SOOF which sits in pads on the surface of the fascia increases in size to add weight and ‘puffiness’ to the lower eyelids.
What is the Diagnosis?
Minimally invasive wrinkle relaxing injections causes localised facial muscle relaxation that smoothes the appearance of the skin. Alternatively, blepharoplasty surgery can be performed on top or bottom eyelids to remove excess skin and fat.
Choosing the right vision correction clinic for your surgery is paramount. This is a life changing procedure after all, and you need to have complete trust in your surgeon and care team of professionals.
