Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer:

Eye twitching can occur, either due to nerve cornea irritation from tiny foreign body from wind or unintentional dust, eye muscle strain from imbalance between eyes. Strained eye and/or stress related anxiety cause also cause this problem of blepharospasm. I suggest that you use Zaditor (over the counter) eye drop twice daily to sooth the eye from strain. In addition, use preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal 4 times daily in the affected eye for about 1 weeks. It is also possible that the strain and stress of studying for prolonged period is causing one of the eye to do more work in focusing - this can happen if there is imbalance in the refraction (prescription need) of both eyes. So, if this fails to resolve in 1 week, I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for check of refractive error in both eyes, and possible correction to reduce any imbalance.

Please, feel free to clarify any further question(s). I'm here to assist you to your satisfaction.
