Question: My left eye "vibrates" when I am focussing on close objects. I end up closing that eye to work on compeer screens.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
You probably suffer from tics or computer vision syndrome.
I would advice you to take break every few minutes to focus at a distant object and then continue watching computer screen.
Eye strain needs to be relieved. You can try blinking every few minutes too, that would keep the eye muscles from getting strained which results in twitching.
Good sleep and plenty of liquids would help too.

My son has developed a tic which is causing his head to jerk to one side. He was in a wreck 4 yrs ago and the air bag went off in his face. About 2 years ago this tic started and is getting worse. Could the wreck have something to do with this or should we be looking for something else.
