What are the treatment options for ocular rosacea?

You will need to talk with your doctor in order to treat ocular rosacea. Your doctor will most likely prescribe antibiotics to treat the condition. Usually these antibiotics are taken orally, but if you have skin rosacea, your doctor might also recommend a topical cream. Some over the counter medications to relieve symptoms of ocular rosacea may also aggravate the condition, so talk with your doctor about what treatments are safe.
