Dry eye twitching:
A common cause of eyelid or eye twitching is dry eye. A trial of artificial tears +/- omega 3 vitamins often relieves the symptoms. More serious causes of eyelid twitching should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist if the symptoms do not resolve with tears.

GP has referred me to a cardiologist to check for floppy valve syndrome, but could the pains in my side be from pancreatic cancer though? At 34 years old, odds are in my favour but don’t want to leave anything to chance.
Whoa: Hey Barry, talk about this one with your physician. Physical exam should be sufficient to distinguish musculoskeletal pain -- which we all get in various places -- from deep pain due to some visceral problem. Pancreatic cancer simulating musculoskeletal pain usually is "back pain". The best treatment for worrying about very-unlikely medical disease is to focus on fitness -- hit the gym hard. ...Read more

Probably not: Contacts float on a thin layer of tears coating the front of the eye. Because of this, contact wearers are very sensitive to dryness of the eyes as the lens will become uncomfortable, if the eye is a little dry. The contact does not cause the dryness, but is a sensitive early warning. If you are starting to have some symptoms see your ophthalmologist who can recommend more advanced lenses. ...Read more
Relief, not cure: Eye dryness is due to lowered tear flow or altered composition of the tears with increased evaporation which usually is a long term and sometimes permanent situation. Eyedrops and some prescription medication can improve it but not cure it. There is no natural cure although "natural" drops are available with the same ingredients as normal eyedrops. ...Read more
