Treating Your Blepharospasms

A rare neurological disorder whose cause is unknown in most cases, Benign Essential Blepharospasm, can affect your functional vision to a great extent. It involves uncontrolled muscle movements which lead to the eyelids closing on their own and not opening when you want them to.

In many cases, it remains undiagnosed as it is not common. If you have been facing issues like constant blinking, dry eyes, tired and irritated eyes, or intermittent eyelid twitching whose frequency is increasing with time, you should come in to get it diagnosed.

If you indeed have this disorder, there are three treatment options open to you:

  • You can take oral medication but their effect is limited.
  • You can go for botox injections which will inhibit muscle movement.
  • Myectomy – a surgical option that entails removal of some or all overactive eye muscles.

At OPRSC, we will chalk out the most-suited treatment plan that offers you the best possible relief from this condition.


Bell’s palsy sometimes creates a short-term complication called Lagophthalmos, a problem in which your eyes can not close completely. This leads to a dry eye condition which can be extremely troublesome. However, fret not, as you can find the best-possible solution to this issue with us – both in surgical and non-surgical forms.
