My eyes constantly want to relax and I have difficulty focusing and I have light sensitivity. It's terrible.
I had a bad side effect to dysport. My eyes constantly want to relax. How much longer will this last?

- Light sensitivity and trouble focussing suggest the parasympathetic nerves that narrow the pupil are affected,
- this can happen if Dysport ended up behind the eye,
- see an opththalmologist to confirm what has happened,
- and for advice on protecting your eyes until you recover.

Commonly this is relatively short lived.
Indirect treatment effects may only last a couple of bothersome weeks. That is typical. However, your bothersome side effects can last much, much longer. No one can tell you precisely how long this will last. I would recommend seeing an ophthalmologist to document your concern and assess what precisely is causing the difficulty focusing. It is possible that you might benefit from reading glasses or a paste in prism depending what is the basis for your asthenopia.
