Purpose: To investigate the efficacy of once-daily topical treatment of ocular and cutaneous rosacea with ivermectin 1% cream (Soolantra®, Galderma).Methods: Ten patients with rosacea were evaluated in a retrospective monocentric pilot study. Subjective symptoms (measured with the Ocular Surface Disease Index), skin findings, and ocular changes (blepharitis with telangiectasia and meibomian gland dysfunction, conjunctival redness, tear breakup time (TBUT), and fluorescein staining of the cornea) were evaluated. The follow-up was 8 months (range: 5-12 months).Results: The OSDI score decreased in the 8th week of treatment (38.5 ± 21.7, P = .004). After 16 weeks, blepharitis (P = .004), and conjunctival redness (P = .008) had strongly improved, and grade 1 was seen in all patients until the end of follow-up. Fluorescein staining of the cornea (P = .001) and TBUT (P = .016) showed significant improvement until the last follow-up visit. No side effects were observed. Conclusion: Topical ivermectin cream 1% given daily is an effective and safe therapy against rosacea.
