Botox injection and eyes
The shooting pain was probably from irritation of a nerve by the injection. Even if the Botox were to get into your eye, it would not cause a problem. No need to be worried. Botox works great. Look forward to your results:)

Botox can drip from the syringe directly into the eye which is harmless. Sometimes physicians will inject into the side of the nose trying to decrease "bunny lines", this could be close to the tear ducts but shouldn't cause any issues if it was injected into the tear duct. You just wouldn't have as much of a result in that area. The other thing that could have occurred is there is a nerve that runs from the glabellar area back into the area around the eye and it may have been stimulated from the injection. Either way you should be fine. If you develop decreased vision or double vision you need to an ophthalmologist.
