Disorders related to blepharospasm
Certain disorders are often associated with, or mistaken for blepharospasm. In the case of dry eye, it is a frequent concomitant symptom with blepharospasm, though the side effects of dry eye can sometimes give the impression that blepharospasm is present when it is not. Photophobia (sensitivity to light) is also a common ailment suffered by blepharospasm patients. Meige's syndrome generally includes blepharospasm as part of the uncontrolled facial movements that define it. Apraxia of eyelid opening is sometimes present, and can complicate the diagnosis and treatment of blepharospasm.
Hemifacial spasm can be confused with blepharospasm but is in fact a different disorder.
