Several causes: Eyelid twitching is very common, and often occurs from stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, and overuse of stimulants such as caffeine or 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.

Probably Stye: If this occurred rather suddenly, it probably is a stye, which is a blocked oil gland of the eyelid.

This can create what many call a stye but is likely a chalazion or hordeolum. Either way, warm compresses and gentle massage can relieve the clogged duct. You may need antibiotic eye drops if the clogged duct gets infected. For now try the compresses and see. ...Read more
No : No, you probably have blocked meibomian glands on the eyelids. I tell my patients to get a damp wash cloth and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Test it on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot. Place warm compress the closed eyelid for about5-10 minutes and re-heating as necessary. Use dilute baby shampoo to clean lids. If it persists, go for an exam. ...Read more

Multiple causes: Itching in the corners of the eyes is often related to allergy. Itching on the edge of the eyelids where the lashes grow is often related to blepharitis. Rapid muscle contractions of the lid is called blepharospasm and can have several causes.
