New invention helps blepharospasm patients stop blinking

A new device invented at the Oxford Eye Hospital has helped 60% of patients who suffer from blepharospasm - involuntary blinking.

The Oxford Eye Hospital has developed a "press-up", a rubber pad that puts pressure on the forehead, that can be attached to a person's glasses.

Patient and mathematics professor Anne Watkins said the pad had helped her control an "intractable condition".
