Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles Treatment

Battling with Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles? At Eye Clinic London, we understand how these issues can affect not just your appearance, but also your confidence and well-being.

Understanding the Issue:

Puffy eyes and dark circles can be more than just a cosmetic concern; they often signal underlying health issues or lifestyle factors needing attention. These symptoms are incredibly common, affecting countless individuals across various age groups.

Exploring Causes

Exploring Causes

Several factors contribute to these conditions:

  • Lack of sleep or poor sleep quality often leads to dark circles and puffiness.
  • Age-related changes can cause the skin under the eyes to thin, making blood vessels more visible and contributing to dark circles.
  • Allergies or dermatitis, especially if itchiness prompts rubbing or scratching, can lead to swelling and darkening in the area.
  • Genetic factors can play a significant role, making some more prone to these conditions than others.
  • Lifestyle habits, like high salt intake or excessive alcohol consumption, can exacerbate puffiness.

Ophthalmic Approach to Common Causes. Diagnosis and Examination:

At Eye Clinic London, we take these concerns seriously. We start by identifying the underlying causes, which may range from genetic factors to lifestyle influences and age-related changes. Our comprehensive assessment includes a detailed eye examination to detect any related eye health issues. We consider your medical history, lifestyle factors, and conduct a detailed physical examination of the eye area.

Temporary Home Remedies

Temporary Home Remedies
  • Using eye drops for irritation caused by allergies, if appropriate
  • Drinking ample fluid to prevent dehydration
  • Applying a cold compress to the eye area when your lids are swollen
  • Applying cucumber slices or chilled tea bags over closed eyes
  • Using creams and other skin products specially formulated for use around the eyes
  • Reducing salt in your diet
  • Eating potassium-rich foods, such as bananas, to eliminate excess fluids in your body
  • Splashing cold water over your face and eyes
  • Getting plenty of sleep and rest.

One of the most common home remedies, as mentioned above, is the temporary use of haemorrhoid creams and ointments to reduce the puffiness in eyelids. A common active ingredient in these preparations is phenylephrine, a medication that constricts blood vessels, reducing their diameter.

This can have a potential dual effect on puffy eyelids. First, if dark circles are caused by a visible network of blood vessels under the thin eyelid skin, then making the vessels smaller might reduce the darkness. Second, constricting the blood vessels could reduce the potential for leakage of fluid from within the blood vessel, and this might reduce puffiness.

However, be aware that there are risks associated with using haemorrhoid creams for this purpose. If you accidentally get any of these types of products in your eye, you can experience a severe inflammatory response known as chemical conjunctivitis.
