Question enlarged blood vessels in eyes

My eye doctor noticed that the vessels in my eyes are prominent. I can see they are red. But my eyes are not blood shot. I noticed this a few years ago and didn't think to much about it.

QUESTION : what causes this.

I am 61 , female...BP controlled with drugs

Re: enlarged blood vessels in eyes

It could be an inherited condition but the fact that you mention you BP is controlled with drugs suggests that high BP could have been a contributory factor.
