It is lower part of eye, could it be dry?? to cause this feeling like something is there?

It is possible that you may have gotten something in your eye,like an eye lash, that irritated the bottom part of your eye.So now you are getting a scratchy feeling as if something is in your eye and because of the irritation to your eye you are feeling that twitching sensation.If your eyes are on the dry side it is not uncommon to have a sandy gritty foreign body sensation as well as to have that twitching sensation. You may want to try rinsing your eye out with an eye wash such as collyrium eye wash by Bausch and Lomb.Also try using artificial tears like Optive. Of course it is recommended. that you folllow up with your eye doctor so he can give you a thorough evaluation. so he may further discuss these issues with you. Any other questions feel free to contact me. If this has helped a positive rating is appreciated.
