I Can See Blood Vessels In My Eyes
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. When you wake up, the light change and eye motion is inconstant and briefly the retina sees it as a new shadow which is the shadow of your blood vessels. Enjoy the show as it is normal. ...Read more

Allergirs: Sounds like you have developed allergies. It is also possible that simple irritation from dust and sun exposure could be causing your problem. I would suggest wearing eye protection when you run, and using cool water to rinse your face, and gently wash off your eyelashes afterwards. Your headache could be a symptom of sinus congestion, also allergic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In or on the eye?: If you mean those that are on the white of the eye, they can certainly be prominent. If they have become this way recently, you should have your eyes examined.

Could be a migraine : I would definitely ask your eye doctor since they have already examined you but, given your age, it sounds like it may be an ocular migraine. Sometimes these migraines give strange visual phenomena (dark spots in vision, zig zag flashing lights) and are not necessarily associated with a migraine type headache. Though they seem scary, they are actually benign. ...Read more

I had 2 broken blood vessels in my eyes and wore glasses for 2 weeks. They're healed now, tried contacts and it feels weird. Is that normal?
Subconjunctival heme: I'd recommend an eye exam by your eye doctor and your medical doctor. Most of the time these hemorrhages happen spontaneously, but they can occur from valsalva maneuvers (coughing, sneezing, vomiting, lifting a heavy weight, straining in the bathroom, etc), high blood pressure, bleeding disorders or blood thinners. They will resolve on their own. ...Read more
Sub conj nemorrhage: A broken blood vessel on the surface of your eye is totally harmless. It can be caused by a hard cough or sneeze, a hard bowel movement, or even just rubbing your eyes. It may occur more often in people who take blood thinners or Aspirin on a regular basis.

It happens only when I am waking in the morning. During the day it is fine. The blood vessels around my eyes become inflamed and red?
For contact wearers, blood vessels in the eyes can become enlarged to transport oxygen. Are there ways to lessen this effect? Thank you.
If too advanced: You need to stop wearing your contact lenses, do not wear contacts over night, follow the regimen prescribed for length of time you wear a pair of cantacts(usually 14 to 30 days). 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

Blepharitis: Your description sounds like blepharitis which is inflammation if the eyelids due to blocked up oil glands.

You may consider seeing an eye doctor to confirm the diagnosis as well. ...Read more

As long as it is improving and your vision is not affected, and you are not experiencing significant pain, you can just follow it along. You may use some artificial tears for some slight irritation.
