Pulsating left eye with enlarged pupil

I have been having a weird pulsing sensation in my eye for the past few days.  I am not sure if it is the eyeball or eyelid.  I had one of the guys at work look at it and he says it looks like my eyelid is twitching.  It seems to happen every hour or so.  Is this anything to worry about?

Twitching itself without pain is usually not a big deal.  Cover the other eye once a day and make sure your vision is clear.  Otherwise, see an ophthalmologist as soon as you get back.  If vision becomes compromised, you need to find a way off the ship to get town ophthalmologist.

I'm sorry, there is no enlarged pupil.  The guy I had look at it meant that my right eye looked bigger in general, because the left eye was twitching.  I'm beginning to think I just have something under my eyelid.
