Men and women age 18+ with dark circles around the eyes are needed for a research study.
Why should I join this study?
Dark eye circles are common and can affect one's quality of life. There are currently no effective treatments and no good method to measure response to treatments. Your participation will help us determine causes of dark eye circles and develop a system to measure the severity of dark circles around the eyes.
+ Photographs of your undereye circles
+ Shine a light on your skin to measure pigment levels
+ Self-assessment questionnaire
Time needed for study:
1 visit with 3 optional follow-ups, 20 minutes each
