  • Can affect young and old individuals

  • These are caused by the following reasons:

    • aging – thinning of lid skin, absorption of fat, bone depression or atrophy, loosening of support structures ( ligaments)

    • hereditary 

    • diseases which lead to extensive  fat atrophy

    • dramatic weight loss

  • You may look tired , depressed, or show lack of self confidence. Sunken eyes can make you look older than your age
