In brief: Tetracyclines

If your father is not allergic and can tolerate tetracyclines.
A 3 week course of doxycylcine 100mg 2 times daily with meals followed by 6 mo to 1 yr of once daily (under dermotologist care) may be the best thing that does not interfere with glaucoma. In rosacea blepharitis is also very common. Treatment is the same.
