Cases of Vitiligo around the eyes are common. For many people, the first signs of Vitiligo are the appearance of white patches around the eyes as cells in the skin lose their pigmentation. Those who manage to treat the condition at that early stage often do not see a recurrence of Vitiligo. Because we are taught to look into someone’s eyes when meeting or talking to them, we immediately notice the eye area. This article discusses Vitiligo Eye Treatment and the recommended treatments for this condition.

Vitiligo is caused by the lack of a pigment called melanin in the skin. Melanin is produced by skin cells called Melanocytes, and it gives your skin its own natural color. When the Melanocytes that produce your melanin become damaged, your skin starts to turn white, and the first signs are small spots or patches appearing.

Where does the ‘Panda Eyes’ come into it?

You may have heard the phrase “Vitiligo Panda Eyes” and wondered what this referred to. So where does this phrase come from? If you have Vitiligo around the eyes, you definitely do not have a Panda bear as an ancestor! What is meant by the genetic origin of your Vitiligo is that one of your forbears, a parent, or a grandparent, for example, probably had an auto-immune disease.

Perhaps someone in your family had Vitiligo or some other condition that is caused by autoimmunity, such as diabetes, cancer or an under-active thyroid. Auto-immunity is simply a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body, thinking that it is a foreign germ.

The immune system guards your body against germs like bacteria and viruses. But sometimes it gets a little carried away and attacks some perfectly normal cells in your body. 

Don’t despair!

Vitiligo is not deadly. Your guard cells will get a little carried away attacking skin cells, but that will not kill you. You will not even feel ill if you have Vitiligo, even if it is around your eyes. Vitiligo does not attack your essential organs and it does not destroy your skin.

Take control of your body. Only use proven treatments and if required contact one of our consultants for more in-depth help or advice.

Why the eyes?

Cases of Vitiligo around the eyes are common. For many people, the first signs of Vitiligo are the appearance of white patches around the eyes as cells in the skin lose their pigmentation. Those who manage to treat the condition at that point, may not go on to show further signs of Vitiligo.

The areas around apertures or openings in the wall of skin, such as eyes, ears, and mouth are particularly susceptible to Vitiligo, possibly because we tend to rub our eyes, ears, or mouth more than most other parts of the face.

Vitiligo Eye Treatment:

It is important that you use a specially formulated treatment around the eyes. You have to be very careful because the skin around the eyes is very, very thin. The skin surrounding the eyes is far more delicate than the general skin on the rest of your face and you already know to use gentle cleansers and creams on your face.

Vitiligo that appears around the eye may be localized, or it could also be caused by Allergies, Scratching, or Trauma to the skin area around the eyes. Remember that the skin around the eye area is thin, sensitive, and therefore more susceptible to the condition.

We do find from assessments received that loss of pigment around the eyes is normally more apparent in children and this is due to rubbing or scratching of the eye area. The trauma in this case to the skin around the eyes may trigger the condition.

Another form of trauma to the eyes is the sun. sun damage to the face is normally more apparent on the thinner skin membrane around the eyes which becomes red, and also sometimes swollen. Once the swelling goes down and the damaged skin peels away, we often see the white spots appearing and they start spreading around the eye area.

In some cases, the sufferer maybe also be prone or predisposed to Vitiligo, and the Vitiligo then stays localized to the eye area only.
