What Does It Mean When Your Eye Twitches?
Don’t get too alarmed by your twitching eyelid. Most incidences are benign; usually not associated with any neurological problem. Calm down, relax and your eyelid will probably get back to normal on its own.
Common factors known to trigger this event include stress, tiredness, eye strain, excessive caffeine, dry eye and electrolyte imbalance. Rule out these factors one at a time if you have intermittent eyelid twitch. Talk about it with your doctor if the situation persists, to investigate the possibility of a more serious underlying cause.
If the twitching becomes more severe than you can withstand, there are medications that can be administered to treat the condition.
As strange as it may sound to many, Botox is an approved treatment for eyelid twitch. It is a well known treatment for muscle spasms.
