• Fifty-seven percent of patients scheduled for excision of chalazia over 19 years of age and 64% of patients over the age of 29 were found to have rosacea. This compares to an incidence in our control group of 12% and 13%, respectively. Rosacea was almost twice as common in patients with recurrent chalazia as in those with only one occurrence.
