Ocular rosacea is a skin condition that can cause redness, inflammation, dry eye, and eye infections. Ocular rosacea generally develops as an early symptom of rosacea, which can cause redness, itchiness, and visible bumps and veins around the entire face.
There is no cure for ocular rosacea. However, a healthy skin care routine and regular clinical support can help minimize symptoms and preserve skin aesthetics and eye health.
Eczema is a common skin condition that can develop at any age on virtually any part of the body. Redness and itchiness often characterize eczema symptoms, but eczema around the eye and eyelid can lead to several uncomfortable symptoms like dry eye, flaky skin, and blepharitis.
Eczema can develop for numerous reasons. Treatments can range from topical ointments, allergy medication, or even therapeutic treatments we offer exclusively at Arc Eye Care.
Eyelid inflammation is also known as blepharitis. Although blepharitis is a common symptom of conditions like rosacea, other issues like dry eye, allergies, and poor eyelid hygiene can also cause symptoms.
Blepharitis can cause redness, puffy eyelids, flaky skin around the eyes, and light sensitivity. To help treat the condition, we may recommend therapeutic techniques from our EyeSpa, antibiotics, or steroid eye drops.
A chalazion is a small, red, and tender lump in the eyelid. The lump forms when an meibomian (oil) gland is blocked, preventing the oil from reaching the eye’s surface (essential for maintaining moisture).
People can suffer from recurring chalazion when they have certain chronic health conditions, including blepharitis, rosacea, or tuberculosis. IPL treatment can help resolve a chalazion
by releasing the trapped oil, reducing eyelid inflammation, and decreasing excess bacteria. It can also relieve the burden of home care, as one treatment can often resolve the chalazion within 3-5 days.
