Eyelid Redness/Irritation

Ocular rosacea consists of some or all of the following symptoms and signs:  gritty sensation in the eyes, red eyelid rims, red eyes, frequent styes.  Usually, oral antitbiotics in the tetracycline family are required to control this condition due to it being difficult to use topical therapy in this area.  Laser isn’t particularly useful for this unless there is redness on the upper eyelid which can be treated, albeit very carefully.  Fortunately, most of the time therapy can control this, as it can rarely can cause blindness.
