Getting fluttering sensation below eye. How to overcome this? - Online Doctor Chats
Howw are you doing?
Hello Doc....Im doing good
How can I help you?
My right eye has been fluttering for some three months now....
Does it come on and go away on its own?
even when im sleeping I can feelit fluttering...
yes it come on and go away on its own
This is quite common and is mostly, harmless
earlier it was just the down eye lash alone....now im feeling it near my cheeck bone too
also, sometimes can be brought on by lack of sleep
How many cigarettes do you smoke?
is this got something to do with high sugar levels??
some around 40 a week
You would need to cut down on that
High sugar levels has nothing to do with that
ok....but how about the sugar levels??
Are you diabetic?
sugar levels impact the eyes....so i tht...
They affect the vision
some times both the eyes water a lot
Do you need to work a lot on the computer?
yes about 8 hrs a day
It can happen because of that
Lets take the issues one by one
First, the twitching
You would need to cut down on the stress, smoking and alcohol
That should help
However, this is harmless
and you dont need any treatment for this
for the watering in the eyes
first, take frequent breaks
follow the 20-20-20 rule
every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds
You need to take frequent breaks
second, reduce the glare of your monitor
third, use refresh eye drops 3-4 times daily
I believe that the twitching is limited to the eye only
Is that right?
it was only in the eye for some 3 months...but now i feel uncomfortable near the upper cheeck bone as well
These measures for the watering of eyes will also help the twitching
Its a referred sensation
But otherwise its ok
ok doc...thanks for ur time
Is there anything else I can help you with?
this should be fine
Thanks for consulting me
Bye for now
