Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Sorry I not very good on a chat line
Where was the botox injected?What was the reason for the botox injection?
In my forhead just to get rid of some lines. now I feel stuped.
Is your right eyelid now droopy?
When did you get the injection?
Yes 10 days ago.
No reason to feel stupid.
Botox works by paralyzing the muscles, thus weakening them.
When injecting around the eyebrows, it can sometimes track down to affect the muscle which opens and closes the eyelid -- the levator muscle.
Fortunately, the botox wears off in about 3 months.
In the meantime, you will need to lubricate your eyes with artificial tears and use eye ointment at night when sleeping.
Ok . My question is my left eye sensitive and tired because my right eye is harder to open and see out of?
You should also return to your doctor who injected the botox for a re-evaluation to ensure that it is just a botox side effect and nothing else.
Most likely, you are trying to keep your right eye open and that causes the left eye to be extra wide open.
and can dry it out as a result.
My eye sight was just fine until the Botox was injected
I think that has to it.
I just wanted to make sure.
You should get your eyes check to ensure there are no other problems. If it is just the Botox, then your eyesight should return to normal when it wears off in about 3 months.
