Singer Katy Perry’s eye closed during a concert and she couldn’t open it.
- Katy Perry may suffer from blepharospasm
- Stress, caffeine or lack of sleep
- Facial paralysis, less likely cause
Katy Perry has left her fans worried after the problem he suffered in his right eye during a concert. In social networks has circulated a video where it can be seen that the singer is closes her eyelid right eyelid and tries to open it, but it closes again. A momentary paralysis that Perry solved by giving taps at the end of the eye.
The artist has not made public what is wrong with him. There has been speculation that it might be a facial paralysis or even a strokealthough it is more likely to be a stroke blepharospasma term used in the united states of america for eyelid muscle spasms.
Some followers have recalled that some years ago the artist already explained that she had a “wonk eye”i.e., a deviated eye, although this does not seem to be the cause of an eyelid spasm either,
katy perry could be suffering from blepharospasm
According to the Countrywide Eye Institute blepharospasm is a contraction of the eyelid muscles that cannot be controlled. It usually begins with small muscle spasms that occur from time to time, but over time the contractions may occur more frequently and cause the eye to close completely.
It is delivered when the area of the brain that controls the eye’s eyelid muscles is not working properly. It may be hereditaryand women aged forty to sixty are most at risk, notes the National Eye Institute.
Blepharospasm is a benign conditionalthough it can cause problems with driving or reading. There is no cure but it can be treated with Botox or surgery to stop muscle contractions.
Now, just because an eye closes completely as has happened to Kate Perry does not mean that the origin is a blepharospasm .

Stress, caffeine or lack of sleep
The involuntary contractions of the eyelidmay also be caused by stress, fatigue, caffeine , lack of sleepor even by the dry eye syndrome .
Thus, the stress or the difficulties she has been going through with her partner, Orlando Bloom, could have been the triggerof the incident suffered.
The disease of Parkinson’s the meige syndrome and tourette’s syndrome are among the serious conditions that can cause involuntary eyelid twitching, according to the Countrywide Eye Institute.
facial paralysis, less likely cause
The facial paralysis is immobility suddenof a part of the muscles of the face due to an involvement of the facial nerve. The cause may be a stroke but also a viruscan cause nerve involvement at the peripheral level.
The facial paralysis caused by the stroke does not affect the eye or foreheadtherefore it would not be the case of Kate Perry. In addition, in a ictus or stroke, other symptoms also appear, such as problems with speaking difficulty lifting an arm or walking.
The most common facial paralysis is the so-called bell’s syndromeand its prognosis is good. It is usually caused by a virus, such as a cold or chickenpox virus, which inflames the facial nerve. This paralysis causes half of the face to suddenly become numb, unable to move it or smile.
Bell’s syndrome can also affect the eye by preventing it from closing. By not closing the eyelid there is excessive exposure to air and the eye dries out. The result can be corneal ulcers that can eventually damage the eye and cause vision loss. Kate Perry’s case is just the opposite, her eye closed and she could not open it.
