What could be the cause of twitching in the eye with heaviness in one using computer for long hours ?

My left eye has been twitching alot lately in the past 2 weeks and it feels a bit heavy at some points. I do a lot of computer work. I ve tried to just wear my glasses and not contacts and it seems to be no different. What could this be?

Dear Friend,

From your description it is very clear that you are suffering from computer vision syndrome. Excessive computer work leads to dry eyes and muscle fatigue. Blink a lot while work, close your eyes for 20 seconds after every 20 minutes of work, use lubricating eye drops like refresh tears, and diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids. your condition will improve if you regularly follow these instructions. Take care
