Oh, what happened to my beautiful peepers?

First of all let me tell you how grateful I am to be able to see. I am grateful for my eyes. I've had a few problems with my eyes so it makes me all the more appreciative. This post is looking from a slightly different view seeing my eyes in a photograph. Lately when I have a picture taken, I can't relate to my eyes. I look so different. Is that me? I use to have big eyes, now, they look tired, sunken and small. The camera only emphasizes the sunken areas, and the circles make them look even worse. If I hold them in a startled look, it's a little improvement but I can't keep them this way, it's too tiring? I almost feel like the surrounding muscles are too weak to hold them wide open like I use to. I know I'm not alone, I see many older folk who have lost that wide eyed look. I have to wonder if there is anything we can do to improve on the open look. Has anyone achieved improvement for theirs?
