Corneal neovascularization (NV), the growth of new blood vessels into corneal tissue, is the most common corneal finding in patients with ocular rosacea. Patients with ocular rosacea in whom there is corneal involvement typically initially present with peripheral corneal NV that may develop into triangular subepithelial marginal infiltrates.
Less common corneal findings in ocular rosacea include infectious keratitis, corneal ulceration, and corneal perforation.
