From Comprehensive Eye Exams to Comprehensive Personal Care

BOTOX® was discovered and developed by an ophthalmologist almost thirty years ago. At Eye Care on 5th, your premiere Manhattan eye doctors have been safely using BOTOX® for medical purposes for many years, treating benign essential blepharospasm (a condition characterized by abnormal blinking or spasms of the eyelids) as well as cosmetic reasons.

As you likely know, a greatly beneficial cosmetic effect was noticed during the BOTOX® treatment of these medical conditions, due to relaxation of the muscles of the face and the ones surrounding the eyes.

Since this effect was noted BOTOX® has become a predictable and safe procedure for softening and removing wrinkles and creases of areas of the face without restricting important facial movements or the positive range of human expression.

What is BOTOX?

Botulinum toxin is produced by the bacteria Clostridia Botulinum. BOTOX® is a highly purified medicine containing miniscule amounts of this protein produced by these bacteria under precisely controlled laboratory conditions. BOTOX® is not alive but is a protein that weakens and inactivates muscles for several months.
Your New York ophthalmologists at Eye Care on 5th are ideal professionals for incorporating the aesthetic uses of botulinum toxin and dermal fillers into their medical care of your eyes. It is no coincidence that both of these products were developed by ophthalmologists and/or for ophthalmic purposes. Please note that the beneficial effect of BOTOX® often is not visible immediately upon the completion of the first procedure and might require some enhancement or adjustment treatment a few weeks later.
