Ocular Rosacea

Rosace is disease of unknown origin. Rosacea mainly afflicts the skin. There are 4 types of skin rosacea and one variant. The lid is an extension of the skin. Therefore rosacea can spread to the lid margin causing Rosacea Blephritis or inflammation of the lid margin. Lid margins have numerous pores which produce components of tear film. This has some consequences on tear production. The quantity and quality of tear is altered inciting dry eye.

Dry eyes are notorious for developing pingecula and pterygium. The reason is that tears supply oxygen to the surface of the eye. Deficient tear film can impede supply of oxygen to the conjunctiva and the cornea. So we find that Rosace patients suffer from these disease entities. It may even lead to deep vessels and haze in the cornea.
