Seeking your guidance: I have very pronounced retinal veins

Customer Question

seeking your guidance: I have very pronounced retinal veins in both eyes. My eyes appear to be always bloodshot; regardless of how much sleep I get, diet, etc. My eye doc has looked me over and has said that "some people just have eyes like yours". the good news is that he does not see a major problem. But, I am left with looking like I have bloodshot eyes every day: not ideal. Any advice?

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

Is it possible for you to upload a picture of your eye? You can use the paperclip on your screen to attach it to this thread.

Dr. Rick :

How long has this been going on for? Have you been examined by an ophthalmologist?
