Definition of Ocular Rosacea, eye rosacea or rosacea eyes

Ocular rosacea also known as rosacea eyes or eye rosacea is defined as an inflammation of the eyes often associated with the skin condition acne rosacea. Ocular rosacea can cause a persistent burning or gritty feeling in one of both eyes of the rosacea patient with resulting eye redness. For others, it can manifest itself as inflamed and swollen eyelids with small red bumps, eyelashes that may fall out, compounded by bloodshot eyes. The ophthalmic symptoms can vary widely, including conjunctivitis, blepharitis, iridocyclitis, iritis, hypopyoniritis, and in more severe instances keratitis. The most common symptoms include chronically inflamed margins of the eyelids with possible scaling and crustiness. The appearance is quite similar to seborrheic dermatitis, with which ocular rosacea is often confused. Pain and abnormal sensitivity to light may be present. The ocular complications of rosacea are independent of the severity of facial rosacea. Ophthalmic or ocular rosacea is an all-inclusive term covering all these symptoms.

The Dry Eye Syndrome

The dry eye syndrome, which often accompanies ocular rosacea, can also be treated with non-preserved artificial tears, treatment can be used as often as 4 times a day or more. Another ophthalmic treatment is a home humidifier which may also add valuable moisture to the air. If these treatments for the symptoms of ocular rosacea are not sufficient, more drastic treatments may be needed. One such treatment involves closure of the tear drainage ducts which is accomplished with silicone plugs, which are reversible, or punctal cautery (a burning of the tear duct openings), which is a relatively permanent ocular treatment.

The inflammatory ocular condition that affects the eyelids is Ocular Rosacea Blepharitis which has symptoms of burning, itching, dryness and therefore and irritation and red eye lids. Some patients have styes which are personally bothersome socially as well as physically. Some patients also have keratitis which involves the cornea which is red and irritated. Others have ocular rosacea conjunctivitis.

Keratitis is quite bothersome due to an infection of the cornea with pain, blurry vision, and often light sensitivity.

Ocular rosacea iritis involves an inflamed iris with an eye pain, sensitivity to light, and/or blurry vision which is often very much like the appearance conjunctivitis or “pink eye”.

Also some other disorders are conjunctival Telangiectasias, crusty eyelids, psoriasis, and increased sizes of veins and arteries.

Symptoms, Diagnosis & Types of Ocular Rosacea

The severity of ocular rosacea to facial rosacea is unrelated. However, approximately 50% of patients with facial rosacea have ocular rosacea.

Usually the ocular rosacea patient is more dehydrated than the facial rosacea patient. The average human body is composed of approximately 65% water while the eye is roughly 96% water. Therefore one should drink the amount of water on a daily basis that is appropriate for the body size, exercise, work conditions, climate dryness and exposure to the outside heat and wind. Likewise most all rosacea patients are low on water while being too high on coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcohol of which all push water out of skin cells and all other body organs including the eye.

Ocular irritation with eye makeup

Many women find that their eye makeup can trigger or aggravate their ophthalmic symptoms. Replace the entire bottle every three to four months as there is a good chance of bacterial growth from the applicator after use on your eyelids to the eye makeup bottle. Often when you experience a flare or worsening of your ocular rosacea, simply replacing your eye makeup can easily solve the problem as bacteria can reproduce rapidly in mascara, eye liner or eye shadow containers. Each time you use an eye makeup product it is exposed to airborne bacteria and pollutants as well as bacteria that is always present on the skin’s surface.

anti-wrinkle creamsAvoid Anti-Wrinkle Creams

Anti-wrinkle creams on the face and around the eye area is a source of an ocular flare. We all desire to minimize the tiny wrinkles around the eyes but unfortunately the anti-aging ingredients in these creams are often too harsh and aggressive for the sensitive or delicate skin around the eye area. To topically minimize the wrinkles, apply a drop of jojoba oil at night and during the day. Also, increase the moisture around the eye area by increasing your alkaline water intake. Increasing your water intake will plump up or fill the dehydrated skin that forms the wrinkles from the deeper layers of the skin where the wrinkles actually begin to the surface to form.
