It is common in many to have what appears to be sunken or hallow eyes. You may have a family genetic disposition or lost tissue with aging. When you have hallowing of the eyes you can fix this with fillers.
Think of this analogy: Imagine a balloon full of air (similar to a young person with a full face). When you let the air out of the balloon, the balloon sags with wrinkles and folds. The same thing happens with the face. As one ages, there is fat loss which contributes to a saggy fallen face with wrinkles and skin folds.
