I have blepharospams had them or over two years. I would like to know when you having spams do you try to open your eyes or just let them rest. Do you have problems going out in the night with the light when the spams are bad.

    Thank you for the leaflet. My ophthalmologist just says yes you do have blepharospams but I have no suggestion for you

      He's not very helpful, is he!

      I don't have blepharospasms but I do have eye problems & when they are particularly bad, closing them helps & I keep out of bright lights because I suffer from photophobia, I wear photochromic specs all the time, which helps a little with lights.

      You could try asking a pharmacist or if you are seeing your Ophth again, ask one of the nurses, they may be more helpful.

      Good luck
