What causes varicose veins? What can I do to help these?

I have been working since August 2010. I stand on my feet 9 hours a day. I notice that behind my left knee and my calf I have bad varicose veins. I did not have these last summer. I did always have one large vein that stood out but not all the little purple veins. Can better shoes help this? Should I see a doctor. They are not painful, just ugly.
