I have had moderate rosacea for about 4 years. Few weeks ago, I went on a picnic in a hot weather with full sun. I usually dont wear sunglasses because I never had any problems with the eyes. Biggest Mistake!! Since then my eyes had been watery and bloodshot. I can also see little veins spreaded all around. I was sure that my rosacea had progressed into Oculur stage. I went to see the family doc so he could set up an appointment to see the eye specialist. But he prescribed me Patanol and said it could be an allergy. I told him about the rosacea but as always this doctor just like others was also totally dumb about rosacea. I tried Patanol for two days and its amazing. As soon as you put 2 drops in your eyes, the redness fades away quickly. Also the veins are dissappearing as well. I am not sure if this is the long term drug for Oculur Rosacea since it is only prescribed for allergies.
Does anyone have experience with Patanol or still using it?
