Supposing you have persistent eyelid myokymia, can you get botox or even surgery?

In brief: Botox

Sometimes myokymia is so persistent that it is constantly annoying.
A good first step is to have Botox injected which can quiet it down and sometimes break the cycle. Surgery would be a last resort as it would disturb the lid function.
