What most people overlook is that front surface of the eyeball and cornea must remain moist to function properly. Our eyelids protect the surface of the eye and ensure that the eye remains lubricated and comfortable.

What is Botox?

Every week in practice a new evolution comes to me. This week I was stunned by the number of patients that have came in for Botox treatment without really understanding what it is that Botox does or what Botox can do.

Interestingly enough Botox has been available since approximately 1980 for treatment of strabismus or crossed eyes in children.
