    Well, I have to tell you that smoking can cause sunken eyes. So you'd better give up smoking. As we know that by smoking, it can produce cyanide which is a retinal toxin. And according to some research, Smokers may develop toxic amblyopic problem. In some cases, it can cause sunken eyes. Besides, if you keep smoking, it actually does harm to your health, not only the eyes, but also the body organs. Anyway, for long term effects, it can lead to lazy eyes, and hearing loss. And also, it can degrade the night vision. So it can be kind of dangerous.
