Do You Live in a Dry Eye Hot Spot?
BARRINGTON, Illinois (June 14, 2006) -- A trail of tears may lead to the first diagnostic test for ocular rosacea, a common and potentially serious condition that may result in reduction of vision if left untreated. In a study of human tears funded by the National Rosacea Society (NRS) and published in Rosacea Review, medical scientists have discovered new clues to identify the eye effects of rosacea, a red-faced, acne-like disorder now estimated to affect 14 million Americans.
Survey Shows Facial Disorder Hurts More Than Appearance
BARRINGTON, Illinois (February 20, 2006) -- While the often-devastating impact of rosacea on facial appearance is well recognized, a new survey shows that physical discomfort is also experienced by the majority of people with this red-faced, acne-like disorder now estimated to affect more than 14 million Americans.
The National Rosacea Society (NRS) announced that five new studies have been awarded funding as part of its research grants program to advance scientific knowledge of the potential causes and other key aspects of this chronic and potentially devastating disorder that affects an estimated 14 million Americans.
