Why does my eye always have red vessel around the eye ball so quickly. But other always have those red vessel free eyeballs?

Why does my eye always have red vessel around the eye ball so quickly. But other always have those red vessel free eyeballs?

Probably dry/allergy: If I understand your question, of why do your eyes show prominent blood vessels, i'd assume that your eyes are irritated. With your history of allergies, you take antihistamines/decongestants that can exacerbate dry eye symptoms too. Your eyes would appear red, possibly watery and scratchy &/or itchy. Ocular allergies and dry eyes are the most common causes of red eyes. Try zaditor (ketotifen) eye drop/ tears.

Pinguecula: Most likely you're describing a pinguecula. It's a growth on the surface of the eye typically related to sun exposure. It may become red and inflamed from time to time, but is benign. To be certain it's not something more serious, I recommend you see an ophthalmologist.

Eye hemorrhage: Sounds like you have a bruise (hemorrhage) in the whites of your eyes (conjunctiva) which appears tomato ketchup red and is usually due to rubbing the eye, forceful sneezing or coughing, &/or being on blood thinners. Generally not a sign of more serious problems like a bleeding or blood disorder. Eye drops for moisture if dry or for allergies if itchy are usually sufficient. Disappears ~ 2 wks.

Red eye: Your description sounds like ocular surface irritation likely due to chronic allergies. I would recommend trying frequent artificial tears and topical allergy drops (over the counter zaditor (ketotifen) works well). If no improvement, see your eye doctor since you may need prescription strength medication to get relief.

Red eye: Please start with your primary doctor. Depending on what is found will decide whether or not you need to see an eye specialist. Hope all goes well -- I suspect all will be OK.

Eye allergy: Your baby may have developed an eye allergy probably caused by her stuffed animals, or blanket. Red vessels are blood vessels caused byher eye rubbing.. Remove any possible allergy cause and if necessary pick up some anti allergy eye drops and use twice daily

I had a cold for 3 days, which is now in my left sinus. I woke up with a broken blood vessel in my left eye and redness.

Not to worry: The broken blood vessel was probably caused by coughing or sneezing related to your cold. It will resolve over the next 7-10 days.

How do I get rid of large popped red vessels in whites of my eyes?

How do I get rid of large popped red vessels in whites of my eyes?

Just wait: If you are referring to a subconjunctival hemorrhage, or "broken blood vessel", there is really nothing to do to make them go away faster. Usually takes between 4-10 days to resolve. If you get repeated broken blood vessels, the blood pressure and blood clotting parameters can be checked. The hemorrhages will not affect your vision.

Probably normal: All persons, when looked at closely, have blood vessels coursing over the surface of the whiles of the eyes. There is some variation from person to person. Rarely they are so plentiful that it looks as if the eyes are red. If no one comments upon your eyes, they are probably OK (try comparing yours to others). If you have a dense collection, laser tratment is possible to lower the density.

Many things: You may have allergic conjunctivitis which means your eyes are irritated at night secondary to a local irritant such as your bed linens. If the appearance of feeling of "red eyes" is a concern, see your doctor for a proper evaluation.

There's a red vessel coming from the bottom of my eye, plus my vision is getting weird. What's happening?!

Blood vessel: This may be a subconjunctival hemorrhage which is a leakage of blood from tiny blood vessels (capillaries) into the white of the eye. This shouldn't affect your vision and takes about a week to resolve. It's more of a nuisance rather than a serious problem. In view of your visual symptoms, it's best to be examined by your physician or ophthalmologist, however.

Artificial tears: Are the best drops to use on a chronic basis to help your eyes feel better and control the redness. Avoid using "get the red out" drops because their effects are temporary and when used a lot can cause problems with an actual increase in the redness of your eyes.

What is the safest eye whitener to use on those little red vessels?

What is the safest eye whitener to use on those little red vessels?

Use sparingly: Eye whitening drops should be used very sparingly, as they can cause a rebound effect where the vessels are more often red and dilated if you haven't put in the drops. They are probably okay to use once or twice a month, but frequent or daily use is a bad idea.

I have been having issues with the vessels in my eyes being more noticeable, and in episcleral area it's red. I am taking patanol (olopatadine). Idk if it's helping?

The red eye: Swollen eye blood vessels can be a sign of inflammation. Sclera = white part of the eye, Redness easily noticed. Allergic conjunctivitis (AC): redness all over itching and mild discharge. Episcleritis locally red only. Scleritis: pain and affects vision: serious. AC is common; Patanol (olopatadine) helps. If not work, and allergens gone (check w/ allergist) see eye doctor (slit lamp exam) fast.
