Eyelid Twitching

eyeEye twitching, eyelid tics and spasms are pretty common. Usually only the bottom lid of one eye is involved, but the top eyelid also can twitch. Most eye twitches come and go, although they can last for weeks or even months.

To find a solution for twitching eyes, we needed to determine the underlying cause of this annoying problem. Called myokymia in doctor lingo, these rippling muscle contractions in an eyelid can be triggered by:

•Stress
•Tiredness
•Eyestrain
•Caffeine
•Alcohol
•Dry eyes
•Nutritional imbalances
•Allergies

Eye Twitching Remedies:
In rare cases, some eye twitches just don’t go away. Some of these types of twitches can be successfully treated with Botox injections that help stop muscle contractions. See your eye doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment if the twitching affects half your face or your entire eye, causing the lids to clamp shut.
