What are eye bags? What are the signs and symptoms?

Eye bags, or bags under eyes, refer to mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes. Eye bags usually appear and become more noticeable as one grows older, but may also appear and worsen for other reasons. While eye bags do not usually indicate any health issue, they tend to make people look tired and older.

Note: The term “eye bags” is sometimes used to refer to what the Chinese call wo-can (臥蠶), which are minor puffiness under the eyes that are not age-related. Unlike age-related eye bags, wo-can are considered attractive by some.
