Dr. Randy Waterford and his staff at Waterford Vein Institute of Hawaii wish a “Happy Father’s Day” to every Dad throughout Hawaii.

In fact, according to the Cleveland Clinic, estimates of occurrence of varicose veins in men are as high as 50 percent, especially if you’re over 60.

However, you don’t have to be a Dad — or even a man — to have varicose veins or spider veins. These results of vein disease can happen to just about anyone at any time, regardless of your age.

Some of the symptoms of vein disease in Hawaii, also known as venous insufficiency or venous reflux, include: legs throbbing with pain, legs becoming restless at night, legs feeling “heavy” or tired after being on your feet all day, or swollen, rope-like varicose veins that are visible on the surface.

In fact, vein disease is a progressive medical condition that can get worse over time, and could lead to medical complications later on.

So for Dads or anyone else who may be concerned about your legs, varicose veins or spider veins, call Waterford Vein Institute of Hawaii to make an appointment:
