Ocular Rosacea

  • Ocular rosacea is associated with a chronic skin condition known as acne rosacea.
  • The problem usually affects those with light skin, and is characterized by redness and bumps concentrated on the forehead, nose and cheeks.
  • One of the earliest symptoms of rosacea (often experienced during puberty) is facial flushing brought on by changes in body temperature, emotion, or hot drinks.
  • Eventually, the skin of the eyelids may become chronically red, irritated and inflamed.
