    Default Four New Eye Drops for Ocular Rosacea

    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.

    I read somewhere that putting castor oil on eyelashes helps stop them from falling out. Others say it clogs the glands and makes more lashes fall out. Have you heard anything about this?
