#Blurry vision after Botox
Blurred vision can only occur after Botox if the extraocular muscles, which are responsible for the movements of the eyeball, are affected. This is extremely uncommon and the vision would not be blurred in one eye only, but would resolve in time. Glasses would not be prescribed for this problem.
I do hope this information is helpful to you. All the best! Dr. Clark
Blurry vision from Botox is extremely rare. If the blurry vision is a result of the Botox injections it will go away in a few months. If the new glasses corrected the situation then it is unlikely that the Botox is responsible. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Botox for the best results.
If the blurred vision is due to Botox it will resolve in approx 3 months when the Botox wears off.
If the blurred vision is due to Botox it will resolve in approx 3 months when the Botox wears off. This is an uncommon side effect of Botox.
If the glasses correct the blurry vision, it sounds like it's not related to the Botox injections since neurotoxins won't change a prescription (probably coincidental). If injections are very close to the eyes, sometimes they can weaken the orbicularis muscle (which causes the eye to close) and patients can get a dry eye or even a droopy lower eyelid. The dry eye can contribute to blurry vision but that wouldn't be correctable with glasses and would resolve as the effect of the botox wore off. Botox can affect eye movement if it is injected near one of the eye muscles but that would result in temporary double vision rather than blurry vision.
Hope that helps.
Periorbital Complications of Botox Injections
It is unfortunate that Botox injections cause headaches for
you.This is a relatively uncommon side
effect, but it is usually only temporary.Less than 1% of patients may develop severe, life-altering headaches
that can persist for 2-4 weeks.The
cause of these headaches is unknown.However, the headaches are not typically associated with blurry vision.
Are you having blurry vision or double vision?Double vision is a rare complication of Botox
injections that occurs when the Botox diffuses to the extraocular muscles.These muscles are responsible for eye
movements, and paralysis causes a condition called strabismus.It is important to see a board-certified
ophthomologist as soon as possible so that an accurate diagnosis can be
made.Strabismus is usually temporary,
and temporary treatments can help with symptoms until the extraocular muscles
regain normal function.An
ophthalmologist may recommend an eye patch or a Frensel membrane prism in your
eyeglasses, and you will need to be seen on a regular basis to monitor for
resolution of the condition.
Blurry Vision after Botox
Blurry vision is not normally seen after Botox injections. I am not sure that the two are related. If the glasses make your vision better then it is probably just a coincidence that you maybe needed glasses.
Blurry vision is not a normal side effect from botox. Your eye doctor should be able to address this concern. it is strange that your eye doctor would prescribe you glasses if the concern is that it is from the botox treatment.
Concern with blurry vision
Any concern with blurry vision should be immediately addressed by your eye doctor. This is not a typical side effect from Botox.
Blurry vision after Botox
Based on your statement I believe your blurry vision isn't from Botox, but just from aging. I don't know any eye doctor - and I work right next to one! - who would give someone glasses from blurry vision after Botox - these two things are different. Botox would affect the muscles' ability to move (if it were injected too close within the orbital rim) and this would not be improved with glasses.....
