Hautarzt. 2013 Jul;64(7):506-8 Authors: Sobolewska B, Zierhut M Abstract Half of patients with rosacea develop ocular involvement. The complaints are often nonspecific. The most common ocular manifestation is blepharoconjunctivitis with dry eye, while on rare occasion rosacea keratitis can lead to corneal ulcer, which then requires urgent ophthalmologic consultation. Topical therapy with preservative-free artificial lubricants and lid hygiene is recommended for the primary treatment of ocular rosacea. Secondarily, systemic medications are indicated depending on severity of the ocular and skin findings.
