Similar to eyelid: Eyelid, brow twitching is very common, and often occurs from stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, and overuse of stimulants -caffeine and decongestants. Local eye irritation can also add to this, such as dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid infection, inflammation). Eyestrain and excessive reading can contribute. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes.
