My partner was diagnosed with blapharospasm about 3yrs ago and has seen several eye specialists. He has had several treatments, included botox. Drs are now not sure whether it is blepharospasm but don't know what it is. He has been washing his eyes using baby shampoo, daily, as directed by one specialist (as it is thought he may have blepharitis). He has also been diagnosed with dry eye and uses eye drops. His problems have left him virtually blind, unable to work, drive, live a normal life for over a year. Certain weather conditions make his problems worse ie sunny or windy weather, fluorescent lighting etc. He has seen a clinical psychiatrist today to help his accept his condition.
Does anyone have any further ideas/suggestions as to what may be causing the problems that are similar to blepharospasm (without the spasms)?
Any suggestions/thoughts/ideas would be gratefully received. We are really desperate to get our old, normal life back.
