    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    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.
