I am getting regular twitching of the right eyes, i met a doctor he said its due to weakness of the muscles. my my grandma use to say, if right eye twitches its good. if left eye twitches its bad, means something bad is going to happen.

I have a "lazy eye" and my eye twitches too due to the muscles being weak. I sugest seeing an eye specialist who can find the problem ( if there is one ) and offer different ways to correct the problem, I wish i had when i was younger but there is nothing they can do about it after a certain age ( not sure about the exact age)

top left eyelid twitching I m a 29 year old female who doesn t have any known medical conditions. My top left eyelid has been twitching for a few weeks. It twitches a few times in a row, then is fine for a while. This happens 5-10 times a day and is very annoying. It isn t painful, doesn t cause my eye to close, and doesn t affect any muscle other than my eyelid. When I researched causes online, some causes included being overtired, stressed, too much caffeine, not enough magnesium, and reaction to medication. I m not overtired or stressed more than normal. Actually, I have less stress now than usual and have been getting more sleep than usual. I don t drink soda, and only have coffee a couple times in a month. I am careful to drink enough water, and stay aware of salt and sugar intake because they are migraine triggers. I haven t had a migraine in a few months. I do eat junk food sometimes, but for the most part my diet is fairly healthy and I believe I have enough magnesium in my diet. I don t take any supplements, medications, drinks or pills of any kind. Another possible cause listed was dry eyes. My eyes have always been dry, I ve never experienced this before. To put it into perspective, they are too dry to wear contacts without becoming irritated, but not so dry that I notice anything when I wear glasses. I haven t worn contacts in a few years, do not use eye drops, do not have any irritation or eye issues other than the top left eyelid muscle spasms. Please help me find other possible causes so I can find a solution! This is driving me crazy!!!

Tightness in both temples everyday. Very dry contact lenses. Both eyes twitch. Tightness around eye brows. Eyes feel like they are working hard to focus. Not sure if it is sinuses. The tightness gets worse at night. This is not a migraine. No headache involved. Medication such as ibuprofen does not help.
