If you are constantly blinking a squezing the eyelid muscles, you could have essential blepharospasm. You first need very aggressive management of your dry eyes with lubricants, puntal plugs. oral flaxseed and fish oil. possible restasisis, possibly dry eye sunglasses in the day to keep moisture in and wind out, possible moisture goggles at night. After all the things tried, you should see a neuro-ophthalmologist to see if you have blepharospasm and look into possible Botox treatments if you do indeed have blepharospasm. You will get better but need the best ophthalmologists to get you there.
Thanks doctor for the reply.
But could you clarify a more please on use of lubricants.I use generally carboxymethyl cellulose sodium lubricants.Now I have to put them 5-6 times (3 drops at a time) even if the pain is there in veins.I have to live with it.
If i put genteal gel(hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose) then there is less pain in veins but the veins tend to stretch a lot and they dont subside.
I cant put one lubricant at a time since it causes the swelling in veins.This can be seen on the outside of the skin beneath the eye.
Even when i sleep in the night i get a constant pain like if there is a lot of weight on the one nerve which comes thru nose and goes circular beneath the eye.I also get pain in nerve behind the eye in head portion(This used to be before also but it was sustainable)
Is it some kind of allergies which is goin on with lubricants?
Should i continue to put lubricants even if it pains in the vein?
Also the Circular portion in the muscles beneath the eye tends to halt at a certain point and pains .I could feel the veins being constantly stretched ,paining and a burning sensation makes the portion beneath the eye --red.
Even when i open my mouth i get a pain in the muscle spasms as if there is some swelling inside.
I had to literally resign from my job since i could not work on computers due to lot of pain in veins which would also make difficult to talk.
I have to take steroids(sodium betamethasone).This is the only medicine that subsides the pain around 50-60% and i could take my day through.
Doc,Could you suggest some possible operation or solution or taking some vitamins would help?
I had consulted a neurophysician but he said he could not find something on a clinical note.
Again thanks for your timely reply.
I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to determine the cause of your symptoms. There are additional treatments for the diagnoses that you may have. If you need the name of an alternative eyeMD, please seek the AAO.org www site and seek the find an eyeMD section.
