18 year old female. I have really bad eye bags. I'm wondering if a disease can cause this? It seems to be getting worse.

Lower Lid Bags
Hi nylakenkins, Thanks for your question. If your mother had bad lower lid bags, it's entirely possible that you may have an inherited form even if the rest of your immediate family does not. Lower lid bags can be made worse by thyroid eye disease. However, without any photos, it is hard to give you any recommendations or advice about the causes and treatments of your lower eyelid issues. I would recommend an in-person evaluation with a skilled oculoplastic surgeon in your area. Good luck!
