    Well, you don not need worry about it. The veins are normal and they happen in every people's eye. It may just appear more prominent in some situation. If they occur to your eyes, you should take some measures to treat them. For example, if you are having any dry eyes, some lubrication eye drops may help.

    If there exists the red veins in your eyes, your eyes must be dry because of the long use in front computers or using eyes on other aspects. You'd better have a good rest for the eyes, in case of the bad infection which cause the eye disease. You can eat more food with vitamin C to moisture the eyes.
