Upper eyelid varicose vein

This is a very unusual place to develop this varicosity.  Assuming there is no pathology causing this vein to bulge up I would recommend sclerotherapy or monopolar electrocautery.   Several treatments may be needed to get the desired response.  

Large veins on the upper eyelid

This is an interestingly rare location for 'varicose veins', namely, on the eyelid. The best treatment is combination with sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy at the same setting. See someone with expertise. I recommend a vein specialist who also is certified as a cosmetic plastic surgery. See the link below. 

Veins in the eyelids

This is likely a vascular malformation that should be addressed to prevent further progression. Ablation and/or microphlebectomy may be indicated.

Eyelid veins

We recommend laser with corneal shields for these type of vessels.  As well, radio frequency or electrocautery can be used in conjunction such as the Veinwave or Veingogh or hyfercater devices.

Upper eyelid vein.

Upper eyelid veins I find are harder to treat then other around eye veins.  Base on the picture I would treat this vein with sclerotherapy or fine needle RF or a combination of both.
