What is the treatment for blepharospasm?
There is no cure for blepharospasm, but there are several treatments that can help relieve your symptoms. Medicines that you take by mouth may help. Your doctor will talk to you about which medicine is right for you.
Your doctor may talk to you about surgery. During surgery (called a myectomy), your doctor will remove some muscles and nerves in the eyelids.
Will blepharospasm eventually go away on its own?
No. Blepharospasm is a life-long disorder.
