Dry eye and delay in blinking left eye
Hello, my Mother, 46. Is having occasional difficulty blinking her left eye. She says the rhythm between her blinking and the eye lid closing is not in sync and is slow. Sometimes it may also look like she is sleepy even when she is not. I told her to smile to check whether both sides look equal. They do look equal. What can be the reason behind this delayed blinking of her eye?
