A blepharospasm is a bothersome symptom
of the periorbital zone. It appears as repeated and involuntary contractions of the eyelids. Though its cause is unknown, its occurrence is often attributed to stress
. Treatment for blepharospasm is based on the administration of medications that reduce anxiety
(anxiolytics) or muscular contractions (myorelaxants).
