Ocular rosacea, a chronic condition characterized by redness, burning, and itching of the eyes, is a comorbidity commonly seen in patients with a history of facial rosacea. In a minority of patients, however, ocular rosacea may present prior to onset of cutaneous manifestations. The underlying pathophysiology of rosacea is thought to be associated with abnormalities in the body's immune response and neurovascular regulation. As there is no cure for rosacea, current treatment strategies are palliative and long-term in nature.
