Eyelid twitch can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'needs attention'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose eyelid twitch, we could:
|Dry Eye||4%||Ruled out|
|Lack Of Sleep||4%||Ruled out|
Do you ever have an eyelid twitch (or 'tic') that you can not control? It may affect one or both eyelids.
Possible responses:→ No / don't know
→ Occasional slight eyelid twitches
→ Frequent slight twitches / occasional significant
→ Frequent significant eyelid twitches
Insufficient lubrication of the eye by tears may play a role.
These twitches are a spasm of the motor nerves that control the eyelids. They are harmless and quite common, and have no medical significance. Although their cause is not fully certain, it is widely believed that stress is a significant contributing factor. Eyelid twitches usually go away without treatment after a short period of time, but to speed this process you should try to reduce stress.
