In the past few months I've noticed that the skin on my eyelids, up to the brow bone, and now spreading out from the outer corners of my eyes, is darkened. It looks like I've applied brown eyeshadow, and seems to be spreading (it's now more noticable on the outer corners, spreading about 1/2 inch out. I've had no trauma to my eyes, is this cause fot concern?
Not sure. Have an ophthalmologist take a look and ask your primary care doctor about it. They might want to run some simple blood tests to make sure all is OK. Multiple conditions could lead to such color changes (diseases, medication side effects, etc).
