Dear doctor,

Is it possible to use the VeinGogh treatment on the sclera of the eye to remove permanently the dilated blood vessels (telangiectasia of the sclera)?

#

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

VeinGogh treatment is usually used for the treatment of varicose veins where the veins are dilated on the legs. This technique is not used for the treatment of scleral veins.

The recommended way is an evaluation to find out the underlying cause and set the treatment option accordingly.

The common causes are chronic inflammations of sclera and tumors of the ciliary body.

Hence I advise you to consult an eye care ophthalmologist online for treatment accordingly --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/eye-care-ophthalmologist
