Can be treated safely.

There are no homeopathic or natural treatments for veins in these areas.  Both areas can be treated safely by various means including laser, sclerotherapy, micro needle radio frequency, VeinWave and VeinGogh.  The treatment for each area (upper and lower) may vary depending on the size of the veins and the training of the treating physician.  For example, sclerotherapy and laser would be difficult to do on the upper eyelid veins.

Watch a nice video from The Doctors performed by Dr Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified vein specialist (American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine - previously American Board of Phlebology) demonstrate his technique of doing microphlebectomy of veins from the area below the eyes on the link below.

Thank you for your question.

No, there are no homeopathic or natural treatments that will effectively treat this area.  

Yes, laser treatment can work; however, be very, very careful getting laser around the eyes because retinal or eye damage could occur.

To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.

I hope this helps.
