What Is the Prognosis With Ocular Myasthenia Gravis?
In most cases, ocular myasthenia gravis is usually the earliest form of myasthenia gravis to appear. More than 50 percent of people with ocular myasthenia gravis will develop muscle weakness in other parts of their body within two years of developing ocular myasthenia gravis. This is called generalized myasthenia gravis. However, 15-20 percent of people with ocular myasthenia gravis will never develop the more generalized form of myasthenia gravis. At this point, doctors cannot predict which patients will have the condition progress to its generalized form.
