New to the Ocular Rosacea section- lucky me I guess. I have had rosacea for quite a few years now and have been fortunate to not have any ocular symptoms. I have a fairly large amount of telangiectasia on my face but the flushing and p&p component I am fortunate to be able to largely keep under control.
However, a month or so ago my wife mentioned to me the corner of my eye was red. Not her fault but of course since I am obsessed with the appearance of my face (as is common to all Rosacea sufferers) I have now become obsessed with my eyes. While I have no other symptoms, my wife is correct. I have significant amounts of veins in my eyes that weren't previously visible. The area under my eyelids is a mess of large vessels but they are slowly but surely growing into the whites of my eyes. It is not consistent with an allergy or irritation but is clearly like the spider veins on the cheeks or nose. No chance of blasting these with a laser of course.
Anyway, sorry for the long post but part of it is to pour my heart out a little, and the other is to ask if anyone out there has anything similar. Misery loves company I guess, but at this rate it will look like I have two meatballs where my eyes used to be.
