RX red eye: It sounds like you have prominent capillaries in your eye. This could indicate ocular rosacea. I"d advise you see an opthamologist for a check-up to get a clearcut diagnosis. Ocular rosacea is common in caucasians and can occur in conjuction with acne rosacea of the cheeks. ...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

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

Are many red veins in eyes for many yrs a sign of High Blood Pressure in Adults?

Are many red veins in eyes for  many yrs   a sign of High Blood Pressure in Adults?

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

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

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

I started where gas permeable contacts and i've been noticing more red veins in my eyes?  Problem?

Possibly.: You are actually not noticing more red veins in your eye. What you are noticing are the existing veins in your eye (conjunctivae) that have become more engorged. This is referred to as hyperemia and it is a sign of inflammation. The contact lenses either are not properly fit or you are not breaking them in properly or you are suffering from contact lens overwear. See your eye doctor and explain. ...Read more

I have really bad allergies around this time, but lately my eyes are really red, today there was a huge red dot, can it be a burst vein?

Yes: A bright red spot over the white part of the eye (sclera) is probably a broken blood vessel. It should get better after a couple of weeks. As it goes away it may appear yellowish, which is the blood breaking down to hemoglobin. This would not require treatment. ...Read more

Evaluate this: All eyes have some veins on the surface. Some have more than others and a few have an excess. You need an independent evaluation to see into which category you fall. There is no pharmaceutical way to rid yourself of these veins if they truly are in excess but laser treatment can help cut down the density. ...Read more
