Ozdemir M, et al.
Publication: J Dermatol. 2005 Mar;32(3):174-8.

The authors enrolled 87 patients with nodulocystic acne and 50 healthy subjects in this test of eye and vision health. They found that acne patients had 3 times higher incidence of eye health complaint than healthy subjects, and suggest that patients suffering from nodulocystic acne should see an eye doctor in addition to dermatologists.
