I have a busted vein my my eye what should I do?

Conservative: If your eye otherwise feels relatively normal but looks terribly "tomato ketchup" red, you likely have a subconjunctival hemorrhage. Usually these are a result of mechanical (rubbing) mechanism but some are from sneezing, coughing, & straining. If you take Aspirin or other anticoagulants, they are more common. Artificial tears are adequate for soothing. If itchy eye component, then try Zaditor ...Read more

Why might it be that my eyes always have red veins on them?

Why might it be that my eyes always have red veins on them?

Dryness/fatigue: The blood vessels naturally become more visible in the eyes as you age due to thinning of the tissues. Exacerbations of eye redness may occur from a variety of things such as dryness, wind, tiredness, allergies, infections, inflammations, & chronic use of some types of ophthalmic medications. As a benign treatment, trial some otc artificial tears (eg. Refresh tears) to soothe your eyes. ...Read more

What can I do to cure dark circles and veins around my eyes?

What can I do to cure dark circles and veins around my eyes?

Several things!: Dark circles are caused by 1) deep eye socket vascularity (nothing to do about this), 2) darker skin pigmentation (hydroquinone therapy or periorbital peels can lighten), and 3)shadows from eyelid "bags" (eyelid lift surgery can smooth and remove the shadow-causing bulges). Prominent periorbital veins can be eliminated by skillful sclerotherapy (without worry about vision--different vessels). ...Read more

What do you suggest if my eyes tiny red veins how do I make them go away?

Nix (permethrin) the cause: Tiny blood vessels on the eyes are necessary, and are more prominent in some people than others. You cannot completely eliminate them. Eliminating the cause of what is engorging them will minimize their appearance. Allergies, inadequate sleep, drugs and alcohol, infection and irritation from pollution or contact lenses are common causes. ...Read more

Veins on sides of eyes, should I be worried? Fades a lot after a night's sleep.

Which vessels?: If you are referr ng to vessels in the Whites of the eyes (conjunctival injection), this is nonspecific and may be from eye strain and in some people there is no specific cause.

What causes blue veins to become visible under the eyes and can they be removed?

Middle age problem: Get plenty of exercise, eat well, get plenty of rest, avoid multiple hours in front of computer, avoid smoking or smoke filled rooms, avoid too much sun exposure. Sometimes even following all these guidelines thin skin can reveal underlying veins. If these are normal veins they will be hard to remove. If they are spider veins then laser treatment may be available. A photo would be helpful. ...Read more

I've had red veins in my eyes for a few years they have got worse, is there a way to remove them?

I've had red veins in my eyes for a few years they have got worse, is there a way to remove them?

Yes: Red veins if persistent can be due to chronic conditions of the eye but I assume you have seen your ophthalmologist to diagnose this. If it is just a cosmetic issue, they can be treated with laser to attentuate them. This is not covered by insurance as these prominent vessels do not cause pathology of the eyes. ...Read more

Lately I see redish veins in my both eyes. (more than normal). Is this indicative of something? There are no other symptoms.

Lately I see redish veins in my both eyes. (more than normal). Is this indicative of something? There are no other symptoms.

Get examined: If by lately you meant that it has been present for a few days, just see if it will go away in another week or so. Otherwise many conditions such as viral infection, allergies (usually accompanied by itching), or dry eyes can cause it. Best to get examined if this has been present for more than 2 weeks. ...Read more

I was looking at my eyes and I noticed a red vein with a black dot at the end of it. I also noticed a balck dot in my otherother eyewatisit?

Likely benign: More than likely you are seeing something related to the small blood vessels of the eye. Unless you are having irritation, pain, or other symptom it is probably nothing to worry about. However, if symptoms, or if it changes see someone. Foreign bodies, and small blood vessel injuries can cause such spots. ...Read more

I have big veins in my eyes after using clear eyes. Will the veins go away? I get more veins everyday! When will it stop? Haven't use drops for 1 month

See an eye doc and: You may also need see your regular doctor. The eye doctor can help you track down the original reason that your eyes were red (and that got you started on clear eyes in the first place!). If the eye doctor can't find a problem, then your regular doctor may need to get involved. Sometimes thyroid disease can be a cause of red eyes if there is no 'eye cause'. ...Read more

What do a lot of little veins im your eyes mean?

What do a lot of little veins im your eyes mean?

Nothing, normal: Little veins are abundant in the conjunctiva that covers the sclera (white part of eye). With any irritation, a cold or lack of sleep the veins can dilate and show more prominence. If it is only a particular spot then it may be what is called episcleritis for which you should see an eye md. ...Read more

I have permanent veins in my eyes that just won't go away. It doesn't hurt. Is this normal?

I have permanent veins in my eyes that just won't go away. It doesn't hurt. Is this normal?

Depends: This may be entirely normal. Many individuals have prominent conjunctival and episcleral vessels just as a matter of their anatomy. In some, however, especially if the vessels are extremely prominent ant tortuous, this may be a sign of an intracranial process such as carotid-cavernous fistula or cavernous sinus thrombosis. In others, it represents inflammation. Have it looked at. ...Read more
