What increases my risk for ocular rosacea?

Ocular rosacea accompanies skin rosacea in many cases, so if you have skin rosacea, you should monitor your eyes for ocular rosacea. Because rosacea may be genetic, you could be at risk for ocular rosacea if others in your family have rosacea. If you tend to blush easily, you also could be prone to developing ocular rosacea. Ocular rosacea usually affects people with fair skin who are in mid-adulthood. If you fit in that demographic, you could also be at risk.
