Case scenario

Margaret is 52 years old and has suffered from chronic rosacea for several years. She has a permanently flushed and inflamed face and the usual local treatments have provided minimal relief. However, her biggest complaint is that she is constantly bothered by her uncomfortable, dry, irritated eyes.

Margaret has been recently told that she has rosacea meibomitis. She has heard from a friend that there is a new treatment available to increase the natural lubrication of the eye affected by this condition.
