Cureus. 2024 Jan 1;16(1):e51439. doi: 10.7759/cureus.51439. eCollection 2024 Jan.


Ocular rosacea, a subset of rosacea affecting the ocular surface, poses a diagnostic challenge due to its elusive presentation and overlapping symptoms with other ocular surface diseases (OSDs). This report emphasizes the critical role of a comprehensive evaluation, particularly focusing on eyelid and skin assessment, in diagnosing and effectively managing ocular rosacea-related ocular surface symptoms. The case study highlights a 69-year-old female initially diagnosed with common dry eye disease, subsequently identified with ocular rosacea following a meticulous examination revealing subtle ocular and skin manifestations. Treatment encompassed a tailored approach combining systemic and local therapies, emphasizing proper eyelid hygiene. Objective improvements were observed in ocular surface parameters and patient-reported symptom scores, showcasing the significance of an integrated approach addressing ocular and dermatological aspects in managing ocular rosacea. This report underscores the importance of heightened clinical suspicion, thorough assessments, and comprehensive management strategies in optimizing outcomes for patients with OSD, particularly ocular rosacea.
