I have been feeling the pulsating vein below my eye, what is it?

Muscle fiber twitch?: Random twitching near an eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. In the eyelids, it can last a few minutes to a few days. One should see an ophthalmologist (MD eye doctor) if such symptoms persist, keep recurring, or are combined with any other symptoms. ...Read more

Arteries pulsate.: Arteries pulsate and veins do not. However, if a vein is close to the artery, the pulse of the artery will be transmitted to the vein so the vein will look as if it is pulsating. Certainly eye strain can occur when using a computer leading to headaches. I cannot say if the arterial pulsation has anything to do with the headache. If your symptoms persist then follow up with your medical doctor. ...Read more

How to best remove leaky under-eye veins that cause dark circles? Lasers?

How to best remove leaky under-eye veins that cause dark circles? Lasers?

Veins Beneath Eyes: That depends. When they are spider veins, treatment that involve heat (such as laser or ohmic thermolysis) can be effective. When they are larger veins that are bigger than spider veins, then the treatment can be very difficult. In that situation, laser would end up burning the skin and not be effective. Sometimes mico-phlebectomy surgery can be done to remove them with a formal operation. ...Read more

The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist. ...Read more

Art tears, sleep: Your linked image doesn't show enough detail to see any blood vessels in the eye or red eye. The most common causes in your age group are dry eye and mild radiation burns from too much computer use. Artificial tears, sleep, and a radiation reducing screen over your monitor should solve your problem. Allergy is a possibility, but you would probably have itchy eyes. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Is palomar laser skin rejuvenation an effective way to reduce dark circles caused by leaky under-eye veins? Can it cause damage to that area?

Is palomar laser skin rejuvenation an effective way to reduce dark circles caused by leaky under-eye veins? Can it cause damage to that area?

Dark circles: Lasers and chemical peels reduce dark circles of the lower eyelid by causing thermal injury to the skin, forcing the skin to heal tighter and with a lighter color. These treatments reduce fine lines. However, lasers are risky to use around the eye, although they can be used safely for the rest of the face. I use chemical peels to tighten the skin of the lower eyelid to avoid damage to the eye. ...Read more

Normal variation: Mostly all of us can visualize superficial veins on our faces, forehead, eye region, around the eyes, in the areas where there is little fat.

Hello, my veins around my whole head have been pulsating severely, to point where there is a feeling of temporary numbness, also my speech feels altered?

Pulsations: The veins don't pulsate perceptively but the temporal arteries do. I recommend that you have an examination by a physician, including the taking of your blood pressure and neurological assessment in view of complaints of numbness and altered speech. Go to the hospital emergency room for a prompt evaluation and testing. If the evaluation points to anxiety, stress management therapy would be helpfu ...Read more
