Botox injections may help treat a rare eye condition in which threadlike strands appear in patients' eyes, a new study says.
The study involved 33 patients with a condition called filamentary keratitis, in which dead cells on the eye's surface link together to form filaments, causing patients to feel as though they have something stuck in their eye.
After an average of two years of getting Botox injections administered into a muscle in the eyelid, 29 patients (88 percent) saw improvements in their condition, the researchers said.
