Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX The frequent blinking of eyes can be due to some irritation.The irritation can be locally in the eyes or it can be in the nerves supplying the reflex of winking. Mostly the blinking gets better within 6 months period. You can try calcium supplements for a month or so and see if it works. You can see an ophthalmologist to check if there is a local cause for frequent blinking and can try some topical eye drops prescribed by him. Let me know if I can assist you further Regards Dr Vaishalee
