    I recently got lasik surgery after wearing glasses for over 20 years and I noticed dark circles and bags under my eyes. I don't know if it was from the surgery or I didn't realize I had them because my glasses were always covering my fact. Anyone know what works best to remove or minimize this?

    Not an expert, but maybe one of those blemish creams.

    There's nothing out there cream wise that can help I'm afraid unless it's due to excess pigmentation ( I know because I suffer from really bad dark circles).

    The only sure fire way to get rid of them is with concealer but that depends on how comfortable you are with wearing make up.

    Start using some eye cream every morning and night. It will help to lighten up the dark circles and reduce puffiness.

    This is what I use: L'oreal Eye Defense

    Also put on some cucumber slices on your eyes for a few minutes everyday and make sure to keep your laptop and tv at a safe distance. The rays from both can cause pigmentation leading to dark circles.

    I like bags around my eyes. And around my nose, and slapping me in the face with a dull fleshy rhythmic thud.

    make sure you wear eye protection, one wrong move and the next pic we see of you is with an eye patch.

    Refrigerate leftover green tea bags and use them like cucumber slices over your eyes. It's amazing. I got it off Dr. Oz.icon_smile.gif

    Maybe temporary due to healing?
    Have you been getting good rest?

    If you're my aunt, you'd use Preparation H around your eyes...it helps constrict blood vessels, just a matter of where you smear it I guess.

    You could also try finding a PT or LMT who does manual lymphatic drainage which can help move fluid retained there away and decrease inflammation.

    Not sure if it works, but I've read that using anti-inflammatory creams such as Preparation-H can reduce the circles. Some models also use cucumber slices.

    My ophthalmologist recently told me to use baby shampoo (e.g. Johnson & Johnson's No Tears) to wash around my eyes on a regular basis. Women spend a lot of time cleaning around their eyes, mostly in their attempts to remove make-up at the end of each day. We, as men, don't need to focus on this, so our pores don't get the same attention, sometimes leading to puffiness and dark circles. I've started a routine of using baby shampoo on my eyes a couple of times a week, and have witnessed a noticeable improvement in appearance.

    I've heard the tea bags work. Great advice, thanks guys. Its been 2 weeks since the surgery so I think its not from that but I don't know. I don't get a lot of rest during the week. Actually, I think I wake up multiple times during the night. I'm gunna try your remedies

    This. Drag queens do this too, under their makeup, and some bodybuilders will strategically apply to muscles as well.

    I have the very same problem and I'll tell you what my coworker said. She said, "there is no such cream to do that. If there was, Oprah wouldn't have bags, cause that bitch can afford anything" lol

    ZIRH has got some voodoo in it. Actually they say caffeine helps the most, I bought this stuff and it works well.
