  • ADavid K. Coats, Ophthalmology, answered on behalf of American Academy of Ophthalmology

    Spasms of accommodation is a situation in which the “focusing muscles” of the eyes contract when they should not. The condition produces blurred vision, and also often produces double vision. The condition is often self-limiting, but if it persists for long periods of time or if it interferes with the ability to function, treatment may be needed. Treatment generally consists of some combination of eye drops and glasses. An EyeMD should be able to help you make an accurate diagnosis and make treatment recommendations.
