Thieme; 2020. doi:10.1055/b-006-161172Comment: Blepharospasm, or dystonic contractions of primarily the orbicularis oris, usually exists as a focal dystonia. Both eyes can be affected, and symptoms can be severe enough to cause functional blindness. Workup and management begin with ruling out and treatment of any underlying eye disorder such as blepharitis, conjunctivitis, or corneal irritation, and with lid hygiene and lubrication. Botulinum neurotoxin is the mainstay of treatment and is well tolerated, with dry eyes and partial ptosis being the most common side effects. Treatment can be tailored to a flexible or fixed injection schedule based on patient preference.
