Some people have prominent blood vessel that cause the sy=urface to look red-- this is normal. Other causes can be allergic or dryness. Sometimes prolonged computer use can cause the eye surface to dry out due to decreased blinking. Artificial tear supple. ...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

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

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

Nix 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

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?

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
