Can be myokymia: Random twitching of an eyelid, which happens in normal people, is called myokymia (an involuntary, spontaneous, quivering of a few muscle cell bundles within a muscle). Myokymia starts and stops spontaneously. In the eyelids, it can last a few minutes to a few days. One should see an ophthalmologist (md eye doctor) if such symptoms persist, keep recurring, or are combined with any other symptoms. ...Read more

Twitching continuously under right eye for more than 10 days. What could it be from?

Blepharospasm: Or twitching of the eyelid can be quite irritating, though not generally dangerous. Most of the time, no specific cause can be identified. Fortunately, it usually goes away on it's own. If not, a variety of treatments are suggested but none seem to be universally efficacious. I would begin with an eye exam to make sure there is nothing else going on. Stress is often a component. ...Read more

U may have myokymia: If the eyelid skin is twitching on/off it ia a benign condition called myokymia often brought on by fatigue, or lack of sleep. If it's twitching more strongly where you can't even open your eyes, you need to see your eye doctor and have this evaluated further. If it's the lighter version, it should go away in a couple days or sooner. Get some rest! ...Read more

What causes under the eye to twitch nonstop for weeks?

Several things: Those annoying little twitches under the eye are what's referred to as "myokymia", which is due to irritability of the individual muscle fibers of the orbicularis muscle. These are typically due to sleep deprivation, caffeine, and stress, and are very common. Blepharospasm, a much less common condition, is when involuntary contraction of the muscle that closes the eye causes the eyelid to shut. ...Read more
