You know it’s been a long day when your eye starts twitching. These annoying little tics are often signs from our body telling us to have healthier habits!

 Did you Ever Ask The Question…. Why Does My Eye Twitch? Eye twitching happens when the tiny muscles and nerves around the eye are stimulated. In most cases, minor twitching is painless and will go away on its own. But what causes these random muscle contractions and how can we control them?

Stress Can Induce Eye Twitching

Although everybody reacts differently to stress, a twitching eye is one telltale sign. When you’re in a stressful situation or trying to meet a deadline, try breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. This can help reduce your stress and hopefully reduce any eye twitches along with it!

Consume Caffeine And Alcohol In Moderation

Excessive consumption of caffeine and alcohol has been known to cause eye twitching. Try consuming coffee, energy drinks, soda, and alcohol in small amounts and spread throughout the day.

Get The Rest You Need

Fatigue is a common contributor to a twitching eyelid. Make sure you’re getting adequate rest to keep twitching at bay!

Dry Eyes Often Cause Twitching

Dry eyes often cause eye twitches and involuntary blinking. Dry eyes may result from medications, long hours on the computer or other digital devices, or wearing contact lenses. If your eyes are often dry, try using artificial tears to relieve immediate symptoms and come in and see us if irritation continues.

Try To Relieve Eye Strain

Eyes that work too hard and get tired more quickly than they should can trigger twitching. Eye strain often results from uncorrected vision problems or the need for a new prescription. Another reason for eye strain can be from the overuse of digital devices.

To reduce twitching and strain, consult with us about vision correction. If digital eye strain is an issue, take frequent breaks when working on the computer for long hours and consider talking to us about eyeglasses that minimize strain.

Whole-Body Health Is Important

If you are concerned about persistent eye twitching, come in and see us. We can help determine the cause and find a solution.

As a Vision Source practice, it’s not just your eyes that concern us. Getting enough rest, reducing stress and having healthy habits is good for your eyes and your life!

We are grateful for our patients!

Amazing office, from staff to the doctor all were exactly what I wanted And needed. My kids thought they were great as well which is important to me. They fit me in for an appointment last minute and stayed late when it ran over. They helped me figure out a way to pay my bill that I could afford. Every step they were there for me, friendly and smiling. I'd recommend this office without reservation to anyone seeking quality eye care! Thank you all for being so wonderful, I truly appreciate it.

I went to Levin Eye Care Center because of the wonderful reviews I saw online. After discussing improving my acuity and reading skills. They recommended the vision therapy program. Even in my mid-twenties, I decided to go through with it and start the process. The sessions were well worth it and it's an easy one on one setting. I highly recommend to take the 1st step and go see for yourself. The results I have experienced so far is amazing. Thank you once again!!!

I have been going to Levin Eye Care Center for 33 years. My wife has been going longer. Dr. Levin and his staff are very knowledgeable and helpful explaining eye health options. Our entire family are patients at Levin Eye Care Center.
