Red Vein In white part of eye

Hello,

I recently noticed (1 month ago) a very prominent red vein in my eye. Growing towards my pupil from the top left corner of my eye. This is visible now when I'm staring straight ahead. I have never had eye issues before and I have perfect vision. I have never had allergies either, however I am at work at the computer all day long. I have also noticed that I seem to get more than normal discharge in the corner of my eyes. Could this be something to worry about? Could this vein growing larger effect my vision?

Best Regards,

The vein should not affect your vision. Veins can become larger or more dilated due to allergy, irritation, dryness, etc.

You should see an ophthalmologist for a baseline exam. Also pull out 2 or 3 good facial photos taken 2-3 years ago and see if you can see the prominent vein on those photos. take them in with you to the exam. if they were there 2-3 years ago likely not new just dilated.
