Ophthalmology & Optometry/eyelid twitching

Question
hello,

what are some causes of eyelid twitching?

my left eyelid has been twitching for over a year. It twitches every single time I blink.

I asked my doctor and she said to go to an eye doctor.

can this be treated or will I have this forever?

Answer
Dear DBK,

The commonest cause is an allergy or strain when using computers.

Treating this condition by using symptomatic relief from anti allergy eye drops is not a permanent solution.

Work towards finding the cause and treating that.

Do visit an eye clinic and that should surely help.

Best
