Coffee Prevents Harmful Eyelid Spasm
 
 
People who drink coffee are less likely to develop an involuntary eye spasm called primary late onset blepharospasm, which makes them blink uncontrollably and can leave them effectively blind, according to a 2007 study published in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

The effect was proportional to the amount of coffee consumed; one to two cups per day were needed for the protective effect to be seen. The age of onset of the spasm was also found to be later in patients who drank more coffee — 1.7 years for each additional cup per day. 

Late onset blepharospasm is a dystonia in which the eyelid muscles contract uncontrollably; this starts as involuntary blinking but in extreme cases sufferers are rendered functionally blind despite normal vision because they are unable to prevent their eyes from clamping shut. The researchers estimated that people need to drink one to two cups of coffee per day for the protective effect to be seen.
