Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you available to chat?
do you have access to a digital camera that can upload the picture to your computer?
no i don't have a camera.
ok. Does your babies eyes look otherwise normal?
yes it looks very normal.
Where is this vein? Is it on the lid, the cheek, just under the lid etc?
under her eyelid just below her eye.
Ok. The most common cause of this is a superficial artery or vein that is just a little bit closer to the skin surface then normal. As your baby gets older this should resolve without any problems.
Just to be complete I would point it out to your pediatrician on the next visit....but I believe everything will be OK
okay i was a little worried i can see it sometimes and at other times i can't.
that makes sense. It would be more visible when the baby cries etc....BP goes up. Nothing to worry about...
yes it does whenever she cries it's a little more visible.
Ok. Have a great day.
