"This is a retrospective review of 14 patients with the history of chronic red eyes with corneal involvement. All patients were diagnosed with ocular demodicosis based on the results of eyelash sampling. All patients were treated with 50% tea tree oil lid scrubs and two doses of oral ivermectin (200 mcg/kg)....Rosacea was present in only three patients."
