Dr. Brodsky Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Why Does My Eye Twitch?
Stress: While we're all under stress at times, our bodies react in different ways. Eye twitching can be one sign of stress, especially when it is related to vision problems such as eyestrain . Reducing the cause of the stress can help make the twitching stop.
Tiredness: A lack of sleep can trigger eyelid spasms.
Eye strain: you may need glasses or a change of glasses. Your eyes may be working too hard.
Caffeine and alcohol: Many experts believe that too much caffeine and/or alcohol can trigger eye twitching.
Dry eyes: More than half of the older population experiences dry eyes. Dry eyes also are very common for people who use computers, take certain medications like antihistamines and antidepressants.
Allergies: People with allergies can have itching, swelling and watery eyes. When the eyes are rubbed it releases histamine into the lid tissues and the tears. This is significant, because some evidence indicates that histamine can cause eyelid twitching.
