Abstract
The focal dystonia known as blepharospasm is typified by episodic, spasmodic, and involuntary closure of the eyelids. It's a degenerative illness that can become incapacitating and lower one's quality of life. Blepharospasm has a complex aetiology that can include both voluntary and involuntary control over the closing of one's eyelids, as well as damage to the corneal blink reflex. In clinical practice, the two most common types of involuntary eyelid closure observed are hemifacial spasm and benign essential blepharospasm. Because botulinum neurotoxin is so effective and has little side effects, it is currently the first line of treatment for blepharospasm. Benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) is a type of craniofacial dyskinesia that is typified by involuntary contractions of the corrugator, procerus, and orbicularis muscles that occur repeatedly.
