Blepharospasm: Is involuntary contraction of the muscle of the eyelid and is usually harmless and occurs with fatigue, stress or excess caffeine. It can be associated with some more serious disorders but not nearly as frequently. You can read a good reference here, but don't pick out the worst cause and think you have it. http://www.blepharospasm.org/eyelid-twitches.pdf.
