PURPOSE To determine the effect of photochromatic modulation with tinted lenses on the sensory symptoms of photophobia in blepharospasm patients. DESIGN Nonrandomized case-control study. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-four subjects (24 benign essential blepharospasm patients and 10 normal controls). METHODS Subjects were seated in front of a calibrated light source. Beginning at 0%, the intensity of the light source was increased gradually until the patient reported symptomatic photophobia. The… CONTINUE READING
