What is Meant By Under-Eye Hollows?

(and why this term is best avoided)

The term "under-eye hollows" is best avoided. Why? "Under" is too imprecise and can be used to indicate anything from eyelid hollowness to cheek bone depression to midface descent to dark circles, all of which are different conditions requiring different treatments.
