I have a red vein on the white part of my eye. My specialist has recommended excision with cautery. Please advise any thoughts on this procedure?

Necessary?: I am guessing you have a prominent vein which disturbs you in its appearance. These are benign and can be ignored and that is an option for you. Otherwise removal with cautery or laser are possibilities with a high success rate and minimal discomfort. ...Read more

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

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 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

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

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

Are red veins in eyes due to dry eyes permanent?

Not necessarily: If you can control the dryness with regular usage of artificial tear (preferably single-use without preservative) you may be able to reverse it assuming that's the only reason for the redness. Plugging the duct draining from the eye to the nose may also conserve more tear. Restasis drop (RX) can be very effective if all else failed. ...Read more

What medication to use get rid of the red veins in the eyes?

What medication to use get rid of the red veins in the eyes?

Avoid red eye drops: Whites of eyes discolor usually from the blood vessels enlarging, making the eyes bloodshot. An exception is yellowing (jaundice) from liver disease. Red eyes are often caused by dryness or allergies. Lubricating or allergy drops (eg ketotifen) can be a big help. Drops that 'get the red out' are highly affective cosmetically but can be very addictive - the eyes get more red if you try to stop. ...Read more

I have red and black veins in my eyes and black dots all over my body could it be parasites?

Not likely: I would recommend that you see a family physician to check your body to evaluate the black bumps. As for you eyes, the red linear lines are blood vessels that should be there. The "black" veins may be just pigmentation around the vessels that can be a normal variant depending on your ethnicity. If you are concerned that they're new, bothering you, or changing, have an eye exam by an Eye MD. ...Read more

So I have red veins in my eyes I think because I played my Xbox one a lot but I stopped yesterday and I've grown like a little black dot on a vein?

Likely nothing wrong: Using the eyes intenstively, with Xbox or anything else, cannot change the appearance of the eye's blood vessels, and certainly can't cause a "little black dot". Almost certainly nothing is wrong. Stop examining your eyes. ...Read more
