enlarged arteries behind eyes

The eye doctor told me my veins behind my eyes are VERY large. How worried should I be? I went to my doc, he took blood. I go back in November.

Dear MarlaDM,

I would ask your eyeMD and your doctor more questions about your condition[s] and the possible things that could be causing this in your eyes.  Without knowing exactly what they observed, it is difficult to assess. Enlarged veins can be associated with  venous occlusions, inflammatory conditions of the retina or optic nerve, tumors, and other conditions as examples.
