My wife is having problems with opening her eyes. Dr.

Customer Question

My wife is having problems with opening her eyes. Dr. Hammond in Twinfalls Idaho has been treating her eyes with Botox injections every three months . He diagnosed her having Blasphoraspasms.
He has been doing this for almost a year now. The injections temporarily help minorly for a few weeks. But for the next two months or so she has a difficult time opening and keeping open her eyes. She is a custodian at West Minico Jr. High School and is having more and more trouble performing her job because of this condition.
What would you suggest for her to do ? She really wants to get her eyes fixed so she can keep her eyes opened. The doctor says she has 20/20 vision but she can't keep her eyes opened long enough to use it.
