Myokymia is the spontaneous, fine fascicular contractions of muscle without muscular atrophy or weakness.

Reassurance and reduction in precipitating factors.
Treatment is usually not needed except when symptoms are severe or when oscillopsia is present.

Local subcutaneous botulinum toxin A (BOTOX®) injections of 2.5-5 units each to the affected eyelid region provide relief for 12-16 weeks. If the upper eyelid is involved, the injections should not be placed near the levator palpebrae; otherwise, ptosis lasting weeks will result.
