Botox was initially marketed for spasm of the muscles around the eye. Although, its cosmetic uses are well known, these were only recently recommended and prompted the development of Botox Cosmetic
Muscle spasms around the eye can be treated with Botox, but I would coordinate that with an ophthamologist.
Botox has been used for essential blepharospasm, a muscle contraction that is involuntary. an oculoplastic surgeon might be the best physician for you to see for this reason.
Yes, Botox can be used for muscle spasms. You need to make sure that you go to an experienced injector for the injection. Under eye injections can be tricky since you do not want to affect the muscle that help you animate your mouth. Good luck.
