According to a large National Rosacea Survey taken last year more than half of the rosacea sufferers polled had active ocular rosacea symptoms. The physicians who performed the survey emphasized that this number is probably much higher because many rosacea sufferers do not know the tell-tale signs of ocular rosacea or incorrectly assume they just suffer from allergies, dry-eye syndrome or blurred vision. Without the correct treatment ocular rosacea usually worsens over time, making a proper diagnosis critical to treatment. Below is a list of the most common ocular rosacea symptoms.
Ocular Rosacea Symptoms
- Red, blood shot, swollen eye lids
- Red, blood shot looking eyes
- Blood vessels coursing through the whites of the eyes
- Blurred vision
- Red bumps by the eye
- Crusty eye lids.
- Itching, burning,and/or stinging sensations.
- Dry eyes.
- Feeling as if you always have sand in your eye or a “grittiness”.
- Light sensitivity
- Inflammation of the cornea and ‘corneal melting’
- Corneal abrasions and microabrasions
- Retinopathy (inflamed, dilated blood vessels that burst)
How Maqui Berry Extract Targets and Treats the Tear Film Layer
Our tear film is made up of three layers – an outer oil (lipid) layer, a middle water (aqueous) layer and a mucous layer that lays directly on the ocular surface. These three layers work together to help maintain the overall health of our eyes and vision… and ward off infection and inflammation. Each time we blink, a protective coating of tears is spread like a film over the surface of our eye. If any layer is inflamed or dysfunctional, ocular rosacea symptoms may develop or worsen.
The tear film serves five important purposes:
- Protects and lubricates the eyes
- Protects against inflammatory ocular disorders
- Reduces the risk of eye infection
- Washes away foreign particles
- Keeps the surface of the eyes smooth and clear
