Treating benign essential blepharospasm: Could it prevent damages on the anterior segment of the eye?
The aim of this review was to determine the importance of the protective role of benign essential blepharospasm for anterior segment of the eye by analyzing changes of anterior segment structures. In this review, we have emphasized the importance of interventional treatment on benign essential blepharospasm with botulinum toxin. We have also determined with the use of fluorescein on the ocular surface if there were any ocular surface defects. Corneal epithelial defects were statistically less pronounced in the interventional group. To conclude, advanced blepharospasm could have a protective effect on the ocular surface.Author(s): Dubravka Biuk, Marija Oluji√Ą?, Maja Vinkovi√Ą?, Josip Bara√Ą?, Egon Biuk, Zoran Zeli√Ą?, Suzana Mati√Ą?
