A few weeks ago. the red lines are on the whites of my eye and the last time I was in the eye doctor was last month

Thank you for the reply.

The red lines you are seeing may be a pterygium. This is scar tissue on the surface of the eye in response to UV damage and dry eyes. Surgery is an option. In the meantime, use of artificial tears and UV protection will help.
