Hi there,

Thanks for posting your query.
There are many causes of eye twitching. Some of them are stress, fatigue , excessive intake of caffeine or nutritional defeciencies like Calcium and magnesium.You could try not to strain your eyes too much.get a goodnight's sleep and cut down on your coffee/tea intake.

Have you got your serum electrolytes tested? Sometimes low calcium/magnesium/sodium/potassium levels can cause twitching of eyelids etc. .

Hope this helps.

Have a great day.
