Blepharospasm Treatment

Blepharospasm Information

Symptoms that you may be developing blepharospasm include dry eyes, watering eyes, light sensitivities, increased blinking, ocular pain (eye pain), and eye soreness. If you have been diagnosed with blepharospasm or think you may have blepharospasm, Botox® may be able to help alleviate some of your symptoms and pain.

Botox® can be injected directly into the muscles surrounding the eye, helping to reduce their activity. This will reduce muscle spasms and help promote muscle relaxation, both alleviating your pain and reducing muscle spasms and tension. Although the idea of having injections around your eye may sound scary, it is actually quite safe and painless. The Botox® injection needles are very tiny and fine, and discomfort during the Botox® injections tends to be temporary and minimal. Dr. Hakimian can perform Botox® injections for blepharospasm in just ten minutes. You may, however, experience some tenderness or bruising at the injection sites, which should dissipate within a few days.

Most Botox® for blepharospasm patients start to see results in just a few days, as the muscles around their eyes begin to relax. Within a few days, even patients with extreme blepharospasm should be able to fully open their eyes and engage in normal activities, such as reading, working on a computer, and driving.
