Hi doctor,

I have a big problem in terms of loosening of upper and lower eyelids. Please check the attached pictures. I have been wearing rings on my fingers which have created pressure on my eyes and l believe have led to my condition. I am extremely worried as nonverbal communication is affected and I am having staring look. My confidence level goes down with this. I have shown to ophthalmologist for sight since the last six months and they have been prescribing drops such as Fusion, Systane ultra, anti-inflammatory eye drops and tablets but my condition is not improving. I have been using cold and hot compress as well and changed my diet. Please advise.

Welcome to

I have gone through the pictures (attachments removed to protect patient identity) of your eyes.

As I can see, there is nothing abnormal with your eyes. Cosmetically, there are some fat deposits around the upper and lower eyelids. This condition is not in need of treatment now. If you want to improve appearance, cosmetic surgery can be done to correct the fat deposition.

Fusion (combination of Sodium hyaluronate, Carboxymethylcellulose and Glycerin), Systane ultra, anti-inflammatory eyes drops or any other treatment will not help you in any way. Wearing rings is no way related to your eye appearance.

Hello doctor,

Is there any other nonsurgical way of sorting this out as it gives a staring appearance and harmful for nonverbal communication?

There is no other effective treatment available other than surgery. Generalized decrease in body weight decreases fat and that can help with your problem in eyes. Thank you.
