Ocular Rosacea - what type of doc do u see?

I have had alot of problems with my eyes being itchy, stingy, red, water, eyelid irritation, etc. I posted on the eye board about it and came across someone mentioning Ocular Rosacea. I have very minor bouts of Rosacea here and there and I found a link that explained more about it and I have 90%of the symptoms.

My eye doc after a series of drops and 3 months of visits almost weekly believes it is allergy. I was intent on seeing an allergist but after learning about Ocular Rosacea, I'm think maybe I need to see a dermatologist.

Does anyone have this problem, and if so, what type of doc did you see about it?

Thanks

I went to my opthomologist and was treated with a low dosage antibiotic and drops.

Glad to hear it I've gone through 5 different drops including a steriod, to no avail. My eye doc suggested I see a dermatologist. Maybe an antibiotic is what I really need. My appointment is Dec. 23rd. Hopefully I'll get some answers one way or another.

Do you still have rosacea of the face tho?

You're lucky, that sounds very minor.

I went to a dermatologist yesterday and he told me only an opthamalogist can treat ocular rosacea. He did however say that my eye problem "could be" ocular rosacea. Not a huge help. He gave me Eletone cream to put on my eyelids and around my eyes for the itching and dryness. So if off to a new ohthamologist next week. Oh the co-pays are just never ending

Wouldn't trust a dermatologist with my eyes, good look with another eye doc.....they see this quite often according to mine.

Good luck.
