Rosacea can vary substantially from one patient to another. The following photographs reflect common patterns of signs and symptoms, known as subtypes, and many patients have characteristics of more than one subtype at the same time.
Rosacea affects the eyes in many patients, and may result in a watery or bloodshot appearance, irritation and burning or stinging. The eyelids may also become swollen, and styes are common.
