Treatment of Eyelid and Facial Spasms

Some patients experience frequent involuntary contractions of one eye, both eyes and/or all of the muscles on one side of their face. The first symptom is usually an intermittent twitching of the eyelid muscle that can lead to forced closure of the eye. Spasms sometimes gradually spread to involve the muscles of the lower face, which may cause the mouth to be pulled to one side. In some cases, the spasms involve all of the muscles on one side of the face almost continuously. The condition may be caused by a facial nerve injury or a tumor, a blood vessel pressing on the facial nerve, or they may have no apparent cause at all.

To treat spasms pf the eyelids and face, Dr. Carroll will inject Botox into the affected muscles, which will cause them to relax temporarily. These muscles will need to be treated every three to six months in order to minimize the spasms. Treatment of this problem is covered by most insurances.
