Question Puffiness below eyes, Dry eyes?

Hi everyone, since I have been diagnosed with dry eyes the questions keep coming and I am so fortunate to have this board to find good solutions. Below my eyes I now have developed puffyiness, not my eyelids themselves but below in the baggy eye section. I have elevated my pillows hoping that would help and it hasn't. Is this a side effect of having dry eyes? Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Blessings!

Re: Puffiness below eyes, Dry eyes?

That's not usual with dry eyes but it might be an allergic reaction to any eye drops you are using. Just changing to another type may help. Puffiness (or bags) under the eyes can be due to a wide variety of conditions or even just lack of sleep but allergies such as hay fever are the most common reason.

Thank you Brian, I will try some different drops, my eyes were not real puffy when I was first diagnosed and so I had some concern. I so appreciate your response, you are very kind with your informaiton. Blessings!
