Thread: Eyelid Myokymia(Diagnosis-treatment)

    Default Eyelid Myokymia(Diagnosis-treatment)

    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.
