We examined a 30-year-old woman who, for 6 months, had suffered from ocular neuromyotonia, which consisted of episodic ocular depression. Apart from the ocular complaint, her medical history and the clinical findings were unremarkable. The patient discovered that she could terminate each episode of tonic ocular depression instantly by forcefully directing her gaze upward. Stretching the affected muscle might also prove to be an effective way of ending attacks of neuromyotonia in other patients suffering from this condition.
