Eye Twitches for a Long Period of Time – Trillium Eyecare

July 30th, 2018

This condition is called Myokymia and it involves one or more of the upper or lower eyelid muscles twitching involuntarily. It is an annoying occurrence, but it is usually benign and of no consequence. It is exacerbated by caffeine, stress and fatigue. So cutting down on caffeine intake, reducing stress and resting more will help to lessen the frequency of the twitch. Drinking tonic water has also shown some success in eliminating or reducing the muscle twitch.
