In brief: Eye muscle weakness

Ocular myasthenia gravis is disease of the neuromuscular junction resulting in eye muscle weakness and fatigue.
If the disease has been confined to the eye for more than 3 years there is only a 94% liklihood it will not worse or generalize. Prognosis tends to be good, one must avoid medications that can worsen neuromuscular transmission. Ocular mg is likely associated with other autoimmue disease.
