  • sounds like you are using a translator system. the condition you are describing sounds like benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) and is typically treated with Botulinum toxin (Botox). there is a small chance that the eyelids will droop after the procedure, but this is not permanent as the Botox will wear off after 3 months.
