Thanks for posting your query.
A noticeable vein under the eye and on thigh is enough to cause distress. It is usually seen in thin built individuals who have lesser subcutaneous fat- a fat cushion layer that is normally present beneath our skin and covers up all these superficial structures to give a smooth looking skin. A thinner layer of subcutaneous fat is not able to conceal your superficial veins properly which can be seen from outside.

Let me reassure you that it is just a normal variation and you need not be distressed. A painless visible pulsating vein is not a health problem.There is no major health concern with you. Do not worry.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
