Can Botox Permanently Damage Your Actual Eye Muscles and Optical Nerves?
About six weeks ago I got a full forehead injection of Botox as well as injections for my crow’s feet. Since then I have had incredible eye strain and discomfort. I went to a good GP who said it was rare but sometimes the injections go too deep and paralyze the actual eye muscles. She told me the eyestrain will go away when the Botox wears off. I'm concerned that I have at least another 4 - 5 months of this pain. I am in a lot of discomfort when I try to work on the computer (I am a digital designer) so cannot avoid trying to concentrate for long spells. Can this eye muscle paralysis permanently damage my eye muscles? Is there anything I can do (other than trying not to work on the computer) that can help alleviate my pain as it’s driving me in sane! I keep having to close my eyes and then press in on my eyeballs to reduce the tension in them. I find sometimes pressing into my brows and cheekbones helps as well. I've never experienced this before. I would be extremely grateful for some advice on this. Thanks so much.
