Who is most at risk for ocular rosacea?

Ocular rosacea usually affects adults between 30 and 60 years of age, so if you are older than 60 or younger than 30, your risk is low. People with fair skin have a higher risk than people with dark skin. Your risk may also be higher if you are prone to blushing easily, or if others in your family have ocular rosacea. If you think your risk is high, avoid triggers of ocular rosacea, such as extreme temperatures or foods that contain caffeine or alcohol.
