The puffiness can be removed by undereye surgery that isn't considered invasive, but unfortunately there isn't anything you can do about the dark tinge. I think it's worse for a man to have this because we women can simply cover ours with make-up. What you're actually seeing is the blood directly beneath the surface. The skin under our eyes is thinner than on the rest of our face, so what's underneath is easier to see.
My mother-in-law had her eyes fixed too, but she still wears her glasses because she looks terrible without them. She's 79 and the skin around her eyes is wrinkled quite a bit, and she just looks so much better with the glasses on because they hide what she doesn't want others to see. And I know another woman who's 77 and even though she had her eyes fixed too, she still wears her glasses for the same reason.
I have found that most people who have the eye surgery are younger and adapt easier. I honestly don't know of anyone older who's had it done and doesn't still wear glasses, even if it's only plain glass in the frames. You may want to keep in mind too, that most people, the older they get, usually tend to look better in glasses than without, so based on this and the fact that the skin around your eyes is bothering you already, you may wish to reconsider even having the surgery done. The reason we have this surgery is so we can see without glasses or contacts, but if you're still going to feel more comfortable with them on, there really isn't much sense in having it.
(and if it will make you feel better, I am in your age bracket, and I personally prefer men with glasses for the same reason we women love the grey hair at the temples - it simply makes you look distinguished, and with the right frames, also very handsome
If you want my opinion, I'd cancel the surgery and spend that money on a terrific pair of frames that make you look like a million bucks)
