Probably: If you're consuming a high quantity of caffeine, then probably yes. Other than caffeine withdrawal symptoms, decreasing your caffeine intake is not a bad idea. Other reasons for your eyes to twitch include fatigue and low calcium. Are you getting enough sleep? Are your calcium levels low? Hope this helps!
