Thanks for requesting me.
That is a very good question.
The cause of ocular rosacea
is not known, although it is much more common in people with fair skin. While there have been no studies that show it is inherited, in as much as your father has fair skin an you do also, it can be seen to "run" in families. But, in the true sense of "my Dad had rosacea and, as such, that make it more likely that I will have it too?", there just isn't any data available to allow a good reply.
The only way to say if you have ocular rosacea is for your doctor to look for specific physical signs and symptoms since there is no specific "test" that helps to make this diagnosis.
If the doctors have closely examined your eyes and eyelids and reviewed your symptoms, risk factors as well as possible contributing causes and found no evidence of ocular rosacea then, I believe that, you probably do not have this condition.
