it could be PIH.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Firstly I would like to know if you wear spectacles.
These dark marks could be post inflammatory hyperpigmentation due to friction over skin by your glasses or due to skin allergy caused by your eye wear frame(spectacle dermatitis, that might have healed with dark spots).
I cant confirm diagnosis unless I have seen the lesions.So for the same, please upload a pic of affected area. You may upload the pic by clicking on upload report/image icon which is on right side of query page.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
