There are four new eye drops now available to rosacea sufferers for
ocular rosacea. They do much more than just lubricate the eyes.
They actually treat some of the underlying pathology.
1. Cyclosporine Eye Drops – these drops have been out for about a
year. For moderate to severe inflammatory ocular rosacea, there is
no better treatment.
2. Castor Oil Eye Drops – For unknown reasons high concentration
castor oil eye drops are very effective for generalized
meibomianitis (inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelids)
3. Medroxyprogesterone Acetate Eye Drops -- Very Effective for
ocular rosacea caused or made worse by menopause.
4. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Eye Drops – The newest treatment.
Decreased androgens in the tear film layer has many negative
actions. Addition of certain androgens reverses many symptoms.
Very new so be cautious.
