Blood Vessels Under Eyes
Subconjunctival heme: I'd recommend an eye exam by your eye doctor and your medical doctor.

When I first open my eyes in the morning I can see the blood vessels inside my eyes in my vision for a second or so. Is this normal?
Yes: The retina is upside down with the blood vessels in front of the light receptors. These are ordinarily not seen because the retina ignores constant stimuli.

There is no treat to make them go away or regress. Your cornea does not need blood vessels to get oxygen, these blood vessels are not good to have. ...Read more
Probably normal: All persons, when looked at closely, have blood vessels coursing over the surface of the whiles of the eyes. There is some variation from person to person. Rarely they are so plentiful that it looks as if the eyes are red. If no one comments upon your eyes, they are probably OK (try comparing yours to others).
