Blackness around eyes because of glaucoma drops

Posted , 7 users are following.

Does anyone know of any good makeup that can help with. The horrible blackness around my eyes because of the drops I take for glaucoma?  My pressures were 10 when I last went to eye consultant. They still insisted  in  increasing my eyes drops to two

different sorts. I'm going to back in Feb to hospital and they may want to do laser treatment. Apparently  my right eye showed a bit if deteriation. I thought that was always down to the pressure of the eye but that has been controlled for some time. Anyone else's experienced same sort of problem?

Thanks

    My eyes are red, looks like I've been permanently crying. Any good foundation will hide it, or use a concealer too. I find eye shadow on my top lid hides it.

    The best make up I have found for this is YSL Touche Eclat. They have several colours. As i have very fair skin I use No 1. It is quite expensive but does last for many months. I use it just in around the eyes and find it excellent Elizabeth 36994

      I have been on Lumigan for several years & have dark circle around my eye.  Also recently noticed hair growth around the eye.  Researched it & info said if you wash area after putting in drops to get rid of excess it may be helpful.  Just started being more careful so do not know if it will get lighter.

    I had the same problem with Lumigan.  After a few months, the blackness went away.

    Thanks Louise. I only had one black eye. The clinic told me to put drops in other eye so I have both eyes black. Not a problem for me.
