Thank you for your reply.

It appears that you may be experiencing symptoms for spasm due to either irritation from dry eyes, intermittent tropia, phoria, blepharospasm, or nystagmus. It is likely that your eyes gets irritated for dryness, so I suggest that you start by using preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal drop 4 times daily for about 1 week, and then if it fails to resolve to follow-up with your eye doctor for closer evaluation, including re-check of prescription.

Also, there is a possibility that problem may have existed but you were able to compensate and suppress it with good control. However, with anxiety you loose the ability to control it, so it manifests. This can also happen with improperly corrected prescription - that is, imbalance between eyes
