Brief Answer:
Take treatment as advised and follow instructions

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Eye twitching seems to be related to excessive straining of eye while working on computer for long duration.

Is there any drooping of eyes associated with twitching or any facial twitching?
You should take calcium supplements.
Avoid working continously over computer.
You can take hourly break of 5 minutes and close your eyes.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
