Dummy me deleted your prompt reply to my request for a copu of the letter to your doctor logging the symptoms of your blepharospasm.

I blocked sender cause I didn't recognize your e-mail name. Sorry about the stupid mistake.

I can't think of any other way you can send it to me unless you used a different e-mail name.

Yes, I know you're close to Philly. Just curious where you go for treatment. The neuro-opthamologist I referred to who has consultation and botax injections on the same day is the top guy at Wills Eye.

P.S. Just thought of something. Please send letter to my husband at janartsbiemans@msn.com. Thanks a lot, Rita, sorry for the goof-up!

Geri....Got your e-mail follow-up so I know you were finally able to retrieve the stuff I sent. I really do hope it helps. When you read my "history" you might wonder why I included some of the things I did, but I was trying to put down at that time ANYTHING that I thought might be relevent. Let me know if you have any questions.

About my doctor....I'm in the Central NJ area (exit 9 on the tpk)
and I've been going to Robert Wood Johnson affiliates in New Brunswick. Dr. Lepore is my neuro-ophthalmologist. I like him a lot (maybe because he took so much time during my consultation in order to see the symptoms for himself). He tells me he is currently treating about 100 patients with Botox ,and it appears he is THE doctor in the area for this particular problem. I'm not familiar with Wills Eye...is it in Philadelphia?

Hi Geri,

I am about 2 hours from Philly and just had first appt in Dec with an Ocularplastic Surgeon at Wills Eye. I got the impression from you that you see someone there also. Who do you see? I saw Dr. Bilyk and really liked him. Other doctor in Lancaster wanted me to have surgery for drooping brows and the injections Dr. Bilyk used lifted my brows up and I am thrilled with the results so far. Are you in PA also?

Got to go finish wrapping gifts. It is 11 p.m. and I'm only 1/3 of the way finished. Think I will get a cup of coffee, I will probably need it.

Looking forward to hearing from you...Coleen in Central PA.

Hi,

Glad to hear you're going to a good place like Wills Eye in Philadelphia. When I was looking for a neuro-opthamologist for my sister in Washington, who has blepharospasm, I called there. They recommended the head of the department who did consultations and botax injection treatments separately on the day of the appointment. I forget his name.

Anyway, my sister is the one who was diagnosed with BEB about a year ago and I've been going on this site to get advice for her. Her job doesn't allow for time and opportunity to do it herself.

Thanks for your response. It was great to hear you had the holday spirit and were wrapping gifts! Happy Holidays, Colleen!
