Adults Living With Blepharospasm

Merz is committed to helping adult patients who have previously used Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) manage their blepharospasm.

When you have blepharospasm, the simplest everyday task can become a challenge. Blepharospasm causes muscles around the eyes to contract uncontrollably. This can make it difficult to read a book, drive a car, or do anything requiring your vision. Because of this, adults with blepharospasm feel like they have lost some of their independence.

But it’s important to know that when it comes to treatment for blepharospasm, you have options. Talk to your doctor; together you can decide on the treatment that’s right for you.
