I had eye hollows filled but had a vessel nicked.Result was a black eye & worry about blindness in future treatments.Not open to surgery & have no wrinkles,festoons,etc.I know blunt cannula may still result in bruising but will not likely pierce a vessel & therefore b safer in preventing blindness.Looking for NYC area PS that does resty in eye hollows with blunt cannula?Almost went to Dr H in NYC but she wanted $3000 for this!Have a youthful face except for eye hollows & upper cheek flattening.

I wish you had posted a photo or your age to assess the upper cheek flattening. It sounds like you may benefit from Sculptra in the mid-face which would gradually build up the collagen and last for two years. Another option is Belotero in the under eye area which is a much thinner hyaluronic acid filler and perfect for the delicate area under the eyes.
Yes, the cannula technique is the safest method of lower / under eye filling. I use this technique when using filler and with fat grafting for this area. Restylane and Juvederm Ultra are great products for this area.
I routinely perform Restylane injections for treatment of "tear trough deformity" with costs starting at $250.
