Several Options: There are essentially 3 options to treat veins around the eyes (periorbital)-laser, sclerotherapy or microphlebectomy. Laser is a topical treatment that usually requires multiple applications. Sclereotherapy involves injecting a solution into the veins to dissolve them just as is done on leg veins. This is my procedure of choice. Microphlebectomy requires making small incisions to remove them.
