Acne rosacea is a chronic skin condition with exacerbations and remissions, which requires long-term therapy to maintain symptomatic control. Etiology of rosacea is not fully understood and more than 50% of patients with rosacea have ocular manifestations such as blepharitis, conjunctival hyperemia, and rosacea-associated keratitis. Sight-threatening disease is rare with rosacea; however, keratitis can result in corneal ulceration and eventual perforation if not treated aggressively. Here, in my case, there is acne rosacea associated with blepharitis, dryness, peripheral keratitis, and eventually landed up with corneal perforation which then managed with corneal grafting.
