Sorry you are going through this. I have not officially got dystonia but had the eyelid spasms & they gave me Botox for it & I have the injections every 4 months (approximately) & they help me a lot. See if you can find out if your opthomologist/eye Dr will refer you to some one who does this. I am fortunate that I dont get black eyes after wards, the eyes can hurt a bit but worth putting up with in my opinion.
Take care.

I see a neurologist for my Dystonia and get Botox injections in my neck. When I started having eye spasms, my Dr used Botox for that also. It worked great for me. Good luck!
