3) Eye Strain
Eye twitching can also be triggered due to eye strain caused due to too much time spent on digital eye screens.
It is very important to take regular breaks from your digital devices like laptops, tablets or smart phones.
Make it a point to look way from your screens every twenty minutes and allow your eyes to focus on a distant object for few seconds.
You can also get computer eye glasses to relieve digital eye strain.
4) Caffeine and Alcohol
Too much caffeine and alcohol can also lead to eye twitching.
Try to reduce your intake of tea, coffee, beer, liquor or any soft drinks and see if the eye twitching gets alleviated.
5) Dry eyes
A lot of people also suffer from dry eyes, which can lead to eye twitching.
Dry eyes are also common among people over 50 years of age and those who overuse laptops, computers and smart phones or who take certain medications like antihistamines or antidepressants, or consume excessive caffeine or alcohol.
If you suffer from eye twitching and have dry eyes, you can see a eye doctor for dry eye evaluation. Restoring moisture to the eyes can alleviate eye twitching and reduce the chances of its re-occurrence in future.
7) Nutritional deficiencies
Eye twitching can also be triggered due to nutritional deficiencies such as magnesium.
