Botox side effects
Thank you for your question terrymarkward. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. Most people enjoy the results of their Botox treatments for 3-4 months. At this point effect (and side effects) are usually back to baseline. Botox is not associated with temporary blindness. If I had a patient who was involved with a car accident that caused headaches, I would advise him/her other neurological symptoms such as impaired vision may be possible as a result of the accident. Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
Botox and Eye Damage
Botox cannot cause any permanent eye damage/issues. I suggest seeing an eye doctor to evaluate what may be going on. This is not due to the cosmetic treatment. Best, Dr. Emer.
I had Botox done 8 months ago. Still dealing with pain and dry eye.
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your current eye issues. As Botox is a temporary medication, any sequelae should resolve spontaneously by 3-4 months on the short end, and 6 months at the long end. Since these symptoms have been troubling you for over 8 months, and because your ophthalmologist appears to have been your injector, voice your concerns to them as they may be able to explain what exactly has caused your symptoms.
Botox effect lasts most about 3 to 4 months only
if you are having dry eyes you should see an opthalmologist to check your tear ducts and dry eyes syndrome .
dry eyes can happen any time . More common when we are older
Botox is temporary
Botox only last perhaps six months or so maximum. So it is difficult to think that your dry eyes eight months later are connected.
Your opthalmologist may have some clues and would probably agree that it is not the Botox that caused or is continuing to cause your dry eyes.
Our eyes are wettest as infants and we keep drying out as we age.
Your accident may play a role also.
