Hello Madam.

The reasons for sticky eyeballs, dark circles and puffiness can be many - including hormonal changes, strain etc. Before you start any further investigations/treatments I would request you to try the following simple/natural remedies:

* Avoid excess strain to eyes: Watching TV/Monitor for a long time, direct contact with bright light or sun, dusty or smoky atmosphere etc.

* In the evening/night lie down in a room without bright light, take two cotton swabs, dip them in rose water and keep them over your eyes. Repeat the process for about 15-20 minutes for a week or two and see the changes.

If the problem still persists, consult an opthalmologist.

Hope it helps.
