Can wearing glasses cause your eyes to sink?
An_225901 posted:
It may be a stupid question, but my 3 1/2 year old recently started wearing glasses and everytime she takes her glasses off she has dark sunken circles under her eyes, she never got this before she started wearing them, and if she goes a while without wearing them she doesnt get the circles. Im just concerned since shell be wearing glasses for the rest of her life (or until shes old enough for contacts).

Hi Anon_145595,

Dark, undereye circles can be caused by many things including heredity or allergies.

As we do not currently have an eye and vision community board I want to suggest that you visit our WebMD Allergies Community and our WebMD Parenting Community for help with your questions.
