I assume you have tried EEG biofeedback.  Well try this.  When she is
starting to have a spasm gentle push her eyes in the OPPOSITE direction
she would normally have them in during the spasm.  This may stop the
spasm from occuring.  She may be able to use this procedure to stop
it herself. I hope it works for you.  Ron Blue
