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
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
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
Red eye: This could be due to a normal anatomical appearance if it is unilateral, one eye only. Would suggest you see an ophthalmologist who can make this determination or see if something else is happening and treat it accordeingly. ...Read more
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

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.

If you are concerned that they're new, bothering you, or changing, have an eye exam by an Eye MD. ...Read more
