What procedure will kill my eye vein?
November 11, 2011 11:15 AM Subscribe
I went to a ENT/facial surgeon recently for something unrelated, and I asked the doctor, who also does facial plastic surgery, what I could do about a large vein I have under my right eye. He had me speak with a woman in the office, and she told me, after looking at my vein(s), about a procedure for veins like mine (not spider veins) wherein they inject saline into the vein and then it goes away. What procedure is that? How much does it cost? Do you have a recommendation for a place in Philadelphia, PA?

Just to be clear, I don't have spider veins under my eye. It's a larger, single vein (I have a slightly smaller one under my left eye). I've tried to call the office (seriously, several times) to find this info, but they've been unhelpful. It's bothered me all my life, and it makes me look like I constantly have uneven dark circles. This procedure seems like it would be great! Help me find out what it is. Thank you!
