It sounds like this is a relatively new change in the appearance of the 'whites' of your eyes (also called the conjunctiva). There are many things that can make this part of the eye appear red, including bleeding
, trauma, irritation, infection, or even some medications (or drugs, like marijuana). It is important to make sure that you don't have any underlying medical issues that are causing this change to your eyes, and certainly it is never good to feel self-conscious about one's appearance as you currently do. In your case, the best thing to do is to see an eye doctor
for a full eye exam as soon as possible. He or she can examine your eyes using special lights and a machine called a slit lamp to make sure that there aren't any dangerous problems causing these changes. It will be important to make sure your vision is still intact, and if necessary your doctor can use special dilating drops to look at the back of your eye. Hopefully there will be a solution to this problem, and if it turns out to be a purely cosmetic issue and not a problem with your eyes, then an eye doctor can let you know if there is a safe way to try and minimize these lines.
