Botox to correct double vision

I wondered if anyone has had any experience of treating double vision with Botox injections?

My double vision has gotten worse lately (probably an undetected squint/weakness from my childhood) and I've been seen by an opthalmologist and orthopist. At my last appointment, they suggested that Botox would be a possibility to correct the issue, but that there were some risks, including worsening the problem. I am a bit nervous about having it done, and wondered if anyone else was able to share their experiences?

Thank you.

Not for double vision.

I had it for migraine though and after reading internet experiences I was disheartened, it only works for around 1/3 of my type of migraine but I tried it eventually.

So glad I did it's changed my life (and I love th side effects of less wrinkles) what have you got to lose?
It doesn't work, it wears off otoh it could be your cure!

Thanks. I have to say I'm rather attracted by the side effects of less wrinkles! I am nervous though as they did say that it could make my vision worse...
