Varicose Veins – Detection and Treatment

Normally, blood circulates to the heart through veins. Veins contain one-way valves. If the valves leak, blood pools in leg veins and they may become enlarged or varicose.

Sclerotherapy (Injecting a fluid into the vein to shrink the vein)

Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a fluid into the veins for the shrinking and elimination of varicose and spider veins. The below video shows Dr. Sanjay Srivatsa, in real-time, using the Vein-Eye. The difference in the images of the veins in regular daylight versus the images of the veins with the Vein-Eye are overwhelming.

Dr. Sanjay Srivatsa, of the Heart, Artery and Vein clinic in Fresno, CA, ( ) has tried many vein illumination products for visual guidance in performing varicose vein surgery and sclerotherapy. He is very clear in his support of the Vein-Eye.

"I had a chance to personally use and trial the Vein-Eye in August, 2016, and the device works remarkably well. It has a very sharp resolution even in obese subjects. Skin color, which is often pigmented in my practice, was no detriment and the images had a clarity that was lacking with other devices.

I used the device for sclerotherapy and was delighted with the clarity of the resolution, and the real time guidance afforded by the image. I look forward to its extensive use in general phlebology and as an essential device assisting in sclerotherapy."
