About Ocular Rosacea
Ocular rosacea occurs in association with rosacea of the skin ("cutaneous rosacea").
Usually, the following are experienced: eye lid irritation, styes, blepharitis, episcleritis and chronically red eyes.
When the cornea becomes affected, abnormal growth of blood vessels can occur in a process called neovascularization, leading to infections, ulcers and more serious eye damage. Such cases require the intervention of an eye specialist who will more than likely prescribe antibiotics.
In both the functional and purely cosmetic sense the eyes are highly valuable personal assets. It is critical that the delicate eye area be given effective and gentle daily care to help prevent the development of both bothersome and disfiguring conditions.
They are designed to address chronically red eyes and lid margins, irritated eyelids, regular stye formation, dry, irritated eyes, burning and foreign body sensations.
