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

Treatment:
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.
