Leave it alone: There is no reason for alarm. These things happen to everyone. As long as you are otherwise healthy, and not concerned about medicine side effects, you will be alright. If you are not that healthy or you use suspicious medicines, it may help to have lab tests or a medicine list review.

Eye twitch: In the lids there exists a muscle that is called mueller's muscle. It responds to your circulating adrenaline, whose production by the body happens in response to stress.

Eye twitching: If this is a pulling or quivering sensation in one or several eyelids then it is likely mykyomia which tends to be intermittent and resolve after months. If it is bilateral or forceful it may be hemifacial spasm or bilateral blepharospasm and these may be benign but require evaluation. Lastly especially in a child it could be a tic or habit spasm.

Myokymia: Localized muscle twitching over the eyelids is usually benign and self limited, and can be associated with fatique, eye strain, and lack of sleep. Typically, it is intermittent and quite benign. (very rarely, it involves the face on one side, and if this occurs, see a neurologist).

Eyelid soaks/scrubs: One of the most common causes of eyelid twitches is inflammation in the oil glands of the eyelashes. Search "blepharitis". Hot compresses followed by scrubbing the edge of the eyelid with q-tip wet with hot water and a tiny dab of johnson's baby shampoo and control (but not cure) blepharitis.
