Causes of Blepharospasm
Most people develop blepharospasm without any warning symptoms. It may begin with:
- Gradual increase in blinking or eye irritation
- Emotional tension
- Sensitivity to bright light
As the condition progresses, the symptoms become more frequent and facial spasms may develop. Blepharospasm may decrease or cease while a person is sleeping or concentrating on a specific task.
Treatment for Blepharospasm
BOTOX is a treatment frequently used to reduce facial spasms. When strategically injected into specific muscles, it can relax the eyelid muscles and reduce eyelid twitching.
