What causes distended veins on the temple. I have this mainly on right side, no migraine, but I can feel a slight throbbing when they are distended.

Simple: It is a cosmetical issue not a disease if we are talking vein. One has to be careful as the temporal artery is there too and one can easily confuse between the two, the artery will pulsate not the vein. I have taken care of many of these cases as veins can be closed with sclerotherapy. No artery should be injected as skin can slough off! ...Read more

I have protruding veins that start at the temple area and go down through my eyelid. What is the cause and how to get rid of them.?
