Botox cosmetic around the eyes and face has proven to not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles but is known to treat several eye conditions, including the following.
Strabismus (Crossed Eyes)
Botox is used when someone develops a stronger eye, which will lead to the person’s gaze leaning toward one side. Botox is injected near the stronger eye, so the weaker eye will have a chance to recover. It has been used as a treatment for strabismus for more than 35 years.
Diplopia (Blurred Vision)
Botox is used to treat diplopia by rebalancing the eye muscles that, in turn, will correct double vision whether it exists in one or both eyes.
Blepharospasm (Eyelid Spasms)
Abnormal eye muscle contractions can be caused by dry eyes, twitches, eyelid tics, and many other reasons. Eyelid spasms happen because the eyelids are being forced closed. For 25 years, Botox has been used to treat Belpharospasms and is successful in most people.
