Customer: replied 7 years ago.
its just in the right eye. its the eye ball not the lid if that make sense. i used to drink coffee but stopped hoping that my eye would stop, it just doesn't twitch as hard now and a little less often. I've also tried better sleep. i don't wear contacts or glasses. mostly im worried about something thats deteriorating like Parkinson's. thanks

When the eyeball twitches, does your vision shake or twitch as well?
When did this first start?
Any medical problems?
Any loss of balance or dizziness?
Is there a history of Parkinson's in your family?
