I'd ask a doctor. I might have turrets as well, but my twitches are very different. They're triggered by bad memories, and usually have nothing to do with eyes.

TOURETTE syndrome is one of several neurological motor tic disorders. I would recommend That your Doctor schedule a neurology referral to be sure of the diagnosis. And yes TOURETTE`s syndrom (syndrome) may involve tics of the eye muscles. But you need an accurate diagnosis and futher help. Take care.
