Blepharospasm: You have blepharospasm. It is NOT a sign of a stroke. It's a common annoyance that comes and goes. Fatigue and sunlight may make it worse - use sunglasses. If it persists, there are other treatments that your eye doctor can use. Generally though, it will subside gradually on its own (and return)(and subside).
