Veins Under the Eye

Thank you for your question. Your Dermatologist, Pediatric Ophthalmologist, Pediatrician need to have a consult together and determine the best course of action whether this is a problem now, or may be in the future, and present you with the options.  It is important to et evaluated and may require  a University level team to evaluate all the options. I hope this helps.

This could be a hemangioma

Have him examined soon, so as to obtain a correct diagnosis. Certain hamangiomas will grow and may need intervention if it starts to affect the eye.
