What are the symptoms of ocular rosacea?

ANSWER

Ocular rosacea can cause red, itchy eyes and swollen eyelids.Your eyes also might look bloodshot and burn or sting. You might feel like you have a bit of sand in them all the time. A blast of cold air can make them water. And you might see little pimples in the rim of your eye or eyelid called styes.

Ocular rosacea can make you easily bothered by light or make your vision blurry.

If you notice any of these symptoms, see a dermatologist or ophthalmologist right away.
