Dear BOTIE334

Welcome to JA

Myokymia or eye twitching, is an involuntary eyelid muscle contraction and there is no exact reason for it.

It can be caused by stress , caffeine intake, fatigue, strain of the eyes and squinting after reading or working on a computer for long hours.

Prolong twitching is an indication for you to visit your ophthalmologist.

I recommend that you visit your ophthalmologist and make him/her exclude any abnormality before you consider it stress related.


Please feel free to ask as many questions as you want until you are satisfied.

Regards
