    For the past few months I have had really bloodshot veiny eyes, also they have been burning and can be very painful at times.

    I was previously on medication for acne last year which is known to cause dry eye as a side effect, but am no longer taking it.

    It's the same veins that are present ... this worries me as I really don't want it to turn into something permanent. Veins in eyes can clear up, right?

    I've already seen my GP who has referred me to an eye doctor, but this is going to take 3 months so until my referral comes through I was hoping I could get some advice.

    I've been using various dry eye drops but they don't seem to be doing much at all.

    Are you sure you've been sleeping enough?

    Sometimes if i drink too much caffeine I get the same thing.

    Try some eye drops, the ones which are supposed to make you appear fresher and more awake so your eyes aren't so dry?

    EDIT: Also give yourself a massage around the eye and lie in a darkened room with cucumber slices over your eyes. You can also try using a spoon on both sides that you've cooled in the fridge. Use as many times you wish to resist the burning itchy sensation. Well I spent a year of Uni without much sleep and these helped-ish.

    Damn I've had this same problem with my right eye for about a month. I went to the optician a few days ago and they looked at it thoroughly so hopefully there's nothing too badly wrong with it. Maybe you should see one too, if a referral to an eye doctor takes so long...
    Does it come and go, or is it like that all the time? Some days I wake up with a really bad red eye for no reason I can discern, and then it improves on its own over the following few days.

    Glycerin for tired eyes. A good brand is bausch & lomb. it's safe and gentle for everyday use. It's like artificial tear.

    Albeit blunt, sleep could be an issue. But, the OP felt the need to neg. If the solution isn't an obvious one, go see someone about it already. :rolleyes:
