Question

My eye has sunken tremendously due to taking narcotics in my youth, can it be reset?

What I'm saying is that I had bigger brighter eyes and now they are small and deeper and can the white of my eye be whiter and the redness removed?

Answer

The features that you are describing a sometimes a natural change that occurs irrespective of weight variations, illnesses, etc. To some extent, it can be improved using either fat transfer or injectable fillers around the rim of the orbit.

With regards to the irritation of the eyes, you should have an examination with an ophthalmologist, to evaluate the likely causes and guide you regarding treatment.
