Consult an Ophthalmologist near you to rule out dry eye or allergic eye disease. With persistent twitching, consult an Ophthalmologist specialising in Oculoplasty to diagnose a condition called Orbicularis myokymia and suggest varied options . For Orbicularis myokymia, options for cure include, 1. Stress management 2. Lifestyle changes such as healthy diet and proper hydration 3. Adequate sleep 4. In severe cases, Botulinum toxin (Botox) injection can provide relief till the condition wears off. Hope this helps.
