Hack my eyes! Had this for as long as I can remember!

For as long as I can remember the red blood vessels in the white part of my eye are visible. Usually people just point it out but I've thought nothing of it until now.

My diet: Perfect Health Diet - Dairy(except butter + ghee) I sleep 7-10 hours a night and live a stress free life as a student so I do spend alot of time infront of the PC screen but it doesn't go away if I am on holiday or when I take a few days off from any screens.

I haven't been able to find anything on this, the most i've gotten out of research is 'it's genetics'

I would greatly appreciate any ideas or thoughts on this.

My Ideas:

Vitamin Deficiency? (but i'm eating a nutritious diet and supplementing iodine/vit c/mag/ vit d) ...

Genetics?

Hi there i'm a second year student optometrist... I'v asked my father who is also an optometrist! Have you seen an optom about it? Also do you wear glasses or contact lenses?

Blood vessels around the cornea (the white part) supply oxygen to your cornea and are often more noticeable with contact lens wearers...I wouldn't worry about it unless it suddenly worsens! Some eyes just show more vessels than others! Your actually lucky in a way because the eyes are the only part of the body we can check your blood vessels without cutting you open so the fact that yours are more visible makes your eyes easier to check the health of :)

Hope this helps,

Ryan

You could have blepharitis. Have you been to the optometrist? It's quite easy to treat.
