Eye twitching is usually caused by fatigue, stress, excessive amounts of tobacco, alcohol, caffeine and few other factors. But even doctors aren’t sure about the exact reason on what causes eye twitching.
Some kind of allergies, irritation and dry eyes are also linked to eye twitching. In some cases, eye twitching can present a symptom of a more serious and severe neurological disorder such as blepharospasm (also known as abnormal blinking or spasm of the eyelids) or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Statistics show that in the US only more than 2000 cases develop every year, in mid to late adulthood blepharospasm is more likely to develop in women than in men. You should know that this condition if detected early is not serious. You might be more sensitive to light, get blurry vision and even your entire face can start twitching as the condition progresses.
There is no need to get worried if the twitch lasts for a few minutes, but if it last for more than an hour than you should consult a doctor.
If you experience any of the symptoms bellow we recommend that you see a doctor as soon as possible.
· Upper eyelid starts drooping.
· Twitching causes the eyelid to close completely
· Eyes start to swell, and you get red eyes or notice eye discharge.
· Experience spasms on your entire face.
If the condition is more serious that your doctor will redirect you to a neurologist or other specialists. It is highly important that you get a detailed checkup to make sure there is no neurological disorder.

“It isn’t just particles in the air that can harm the eye. UV radiation due to ozone depletion is a cause of cataracts. According to the World Health Organization, 5 percent of the 18 million who have cataracts had their cataracts develop because of UV radiation. UVA light stimulates the production of oxygen-free radicals that are responsible for clouding the eye’s lens. UV radiation can also play a part in the development of age related macular degeneration.” We often think about protecting our skin, or respiratory system against environmental factors, like the sun or pollution. But, it’s time we think about protecting our eyes as well! Our eyes are extremely susceptible to the elements and our surroundings. Things like pollutants, toxins, and the weather all affect our eyes. How come? Well, the sclera, cornea, and the lens are exposed. We do have some protection in the form of eyelids, eyelashes, and tears but, air pollutants like second-hand smoke, unfortunately, cannot be stopped from entering the eye. Environmental factors can cause issues from dry eye syndrome to serious diseases like age-related macular degeneration.
