Blephrospasm

Hi Doctor, My father is suffering from blepharospasm in which the left side of his face-eye and cheeks flickers continuously which causes him a lot of irritation. Also, he feels headache because of it. Doctors suggest that the only solution is either the surgery or injection..Could you please suggest other alternatives

Sorry to know about ur fathers suffering. This condition is poorly responsive to medications.(and i assume you must have been already adviced the same). Nothing less than Botulinum toxin injections by an expert cud provide you symptomatic relief.
