Puffy, swollen (swishy) eyes, between upper eye lid and eyebrow. I've recently been using over-the-counter eye drops to relieve irritated, watery eyes?
Headache, drowsiness, pressure behind right eye, uncontrollable shaking in head/neck, uncontrollable twitching with eyes, body muscles contract?
See your doctor now: All of these symptoms are not normal. Not sure if your eye muscle twitching contracting is in unison with your body or not? Independently, twitching of the eyes can be benign if it's myokymia and caused by tiredness or exertion. However, it seems you need a physical exam in which your doctor can assess your eyes too, and give you a medical plan to follow. S/he may need to order labs too. ...Read more

Involuntary movements an issue? Have invol. Movements only when i try sleeping. Lip puckering/ twitching. Jaw moving. Muscle twitch. Face twitching.
Could be normal.: Involuntary movements may occur during the dreaming phase of sleep. Some people may have difficulty getting to sleep because they worry a lot and when they finally fall asleep their muscles twitch which can cause them to wake up. It can also happen when you are very tired and yet you may have a hard time to relax and sleep. I wouldn't worry too much about this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more

Lid Myokymia: Twitching of the lid is usually associated with fatigue or dry eyes, but any irritation of the trigeminal nerve (CN 5) could cause a reflex contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle (CN 7 - facial nerve) , resulting in a fasciculation of the lid. In most cases this is benign, and relieved with rest and artificial tears. See an ophthalmologist for an eye examination if persists with new glasses. ...Read more
Can happen: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Eyelid muscle action depends upon the interaction of the neuromuscular connections in the lids. Fluorometholone is a steroid anti-inflammatory used topically and is effective for immune based inflammation of the eye surface and sometimes the eye interior. It will not penetrate the lid skin to reach the neuromuscular bundles and so will have no effect on twitching, etc ...Read more
Dear eye experts/ ophthalmologist:for evaporate dry eye, i can't do warm eye compress. Would washing and massaging eyes 5 min in shower be equivalent?
Maybe: The warm compresses may be used in the shower. I feel that it is the abrasive action of the washcloth combined with the detergent action of the baby shampoo that improves the blepharitis. Try this out and see. For the evaporativ dry eye, use a good artificial tear for lubrication. Keeping the blepharitis under control will help the dry eye. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
