Addressing Sags and Bags Under Patients' Eyes

by Leslie O'Dell, OD, Whitney Hauser, OD

Whitney Hauser, OD, and Leslie O’Dell, OD, discuss the topic of bags or wrinkles under patients’ eyes. Dr. O’Dell says that patients often use products off-label as a way to improve their skin, but they could be doing more harm than good. She adds that it is crucial for physicians to gain a complete understanding of what their patients are using at home prior to determining a treatment strategy. Dr. Hauser provides examples of some simple therapies that have been shown to improve bags and wrinkles, such as keeping the skin hydrated and improving hygiene around the eye.
