Bump on eyelid: You did not say how long the "bump" has been there. If it's not responding to antibiotic, then it is probably a chalazion, a swollen gland in the lid. Use warm compresses on it. If you get no improvement after 5-7 days, see your ophthalmologist.

Sugar and eyesight: Eating too much sugar will not necessarily affect eyesight unless the patient is pre-diabetic or already is a diabetic. In those cases it may swell the lens of the eye causing the eye to be near-sighted. In a diabetic, uncontrolled sugar intake can also lead to abnormal blood vessels in the retina which can cause significant visual problems.

Eyelid twitching: Eyelid twitching is very common - most adults will experience this during their lifetime. It is due to a rapidly firing superficial nerve in the lid. Too much caffeine or lack of sleep are possible causes. compresses to quiet Most often this rapidly firing nerve will stop on its own but if you want, try some cold compresses to quiet the nerve. If it persists, see your ophthalmologist.
