I had a twitching eye for six-months once. From my understanding eye twitches are quite common. Not only from eye strain but from fatigue. I realized after worrying about such twitches too much that the real condition I suffered from was hypochondria/health anxiety. If you think this may be you check out the following hypochondria resource for some information about this condition. Whatever you do don't worry too much about the twitching. Take it from someone who has spent literally months twitching, it rarely amounts to much and the best solution is often just to not think about it.
How are you? Blepharospasm or involuntary eyelid twitching is caused by uncontrolled contractions of the muscles around the eyelids. It usually starts with abnormal or excessive blinking that is accompanied by general eye irritation. The excessive blinking may only occur as a result of being exposed to bright lights, being tired or if you are under a great deal of stress. Minor eye twitches usually do not worsen. If they do worsen or persist, it is important to seek the advice of an eye specialist.
