Excessive veins

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

I have had Blepharitis for years now, but was only diagnosed last year as it was previously thought to be dry eye. I've found some good tips on this forum to try to ease my symptoms, but was wondering if any of you have a lot of very visible eye veins as well? My eyes look like there are red spider webs in them and they have been like that for years. Nothing seems to help. It could be due to years of contact lens wear (which I had to stop years ago because my eyes couldn't handle them anymore), but I was just wondering if it may be the Blepharitis. If any of you have the same problem, is there anything that worked for you to make them less visible?

Thanks.

    Try using Manuka Honey. It will burn initaily, but it is good for your eyes. with a q-tip smear it all around your eyelids on the outside.

    Hi Kate,

    I've suffered with blepharitis for twenty years with only the wet ones helping. only last year I noticed the exact thing as you, my veins have become sooo visible under my eyes and also dark bags aswell. no idea what's causing it to be honest. I've tried manuka honey which made my eyes more red. The best relief was the wet ones really, these made the blepharitis disappear for a whole year..... but now it's come back so tried the wet ones but not helping...

      Hi Chevonne,

      For me it's more veins in the eyeballs themselves. I've always had dark circles with visible veins under my eyes too, but that's genetic. The veins in the white of my eyes make them look so old and tired though and there's no camouflage for that. I fear they might just get more red from anything topical I use, like you've experienced, but supplements aren't helping either.

      Hi,

      I do the warm compresses every day, then eyelid massage followed by cleaning of the lids and lash lines with Blephaclean wipes. I take flaxseed oil and cbd oil supplements and use eye drops for the dryness. Have now ordered the Wet Ones as many on this forum said they helped and will start with tea tree oil, but I do fear that will make the redness even worse as my eyes react to everything quite severely. They are little round drama queens.

    Leave the honey on for 25 minutes, then rinse off. Use a mild face cream. Use non preservative eye drops.

    I always wash my eyes first with one drop of Tea Tree Oil, and a dab of no tears baby shampoo, then rinse with cool water. Then I apply the honey.
