Art tears, sleep: Your linked image doesn't show enough detail to see any blood vessels in the eye or red eye.

No: Prominent conjunctival blood vessels increasing with age is primarily due to the thinning of connective tissues under the conjunctiva called tenon's capsule. This is why baby's eyes appears so white because of A very thick tenon's capsule. Furthermore, blood vessels tend to dilate more with irritation, whether from dryness, environmental exposures, UV, allergies and inflammation/infections. ...Read more
Dryness/fatigue: The blood vessels naturally become more visible in the eyes as you age due to thinning of the tissues.

Do more than usual red veins in whites of my eyes mean there is something wrong with my optic nerves?

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

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

Get new contacts regularly. ...Read more
