    Yes, it is possible for you to cause puffy eyes because of anemia. When you get the anemia, your immune system in the whole body will be declined. You will find that your eyes get the effect too. The puffy eyes may be caused by the lack of good blood circulation because of the anemia. You should intake some food with vitamin C and have a good rest for the eyes.

    Generally speaking, it seems impossible to get puffy eyes because of anemia. Anemia is a condition related to red blood cell or hemoglobin. The count of red blood cell or hemoglobin is lower than other common people. The symptoms of anemia include easily tired, looking pale and developing palpitation. Some patients have symptoms while others don't. It is individually diverse. I have anemia as well as hypotension. As to me, I have symptoms like easy fatigue, faint, dizzy, and sometimes I feel heart beating very fast which makes me feel dismayed. Yet as long as I had good sleep, I didn't see any puffiness and bags under eyes. Yet symptoms of anemia vary individually. It is depending on the causes of anemia. Decrease of plasma protein in blood can cause oedema. The decrease of plasma protein could be caused by liver problem. If there is some problem with liver which is the storage of iron, iron can't get to bone to help hemoglobin production and then anemia is triggered. We can see that puffiness is not the symptom of anemia. They are two symptoms associated with one trigger. Anyway, finding out the root can help you find out the proper treatment. Seeing a doctor is the first choice.
