Hi, bell's palsy is very unpleasant because of problems which it may cause by drying the eyes. Because of nerve dysfunction patient can't close his eye and it may cause drying of eye. In order to prevent it doctor are prescribing artificial tears which are very useful. Also wearing the tape over the eye is also good method.

Hi there,
Unfortunately this condition causes many side effects and it mainly affects the muscles of your face. So your sister will have problems with dry eyes that are caused by Bell’s palsy. You have to know that her tear duct will not be able to produce enough tears and that here eyelids will not be able to close completely. So the fact is that she might even have to close her eyelid manual with here had in order to have enough lubrication on her eyes. Has her doctor suggested any eye drops that she can use to avoid dryness in her eyes? I hope this helped you in any way.

Best wishes,
Marco
