Why does my eyelid keep twitching and how can I stop it?

Benign

Open-uri20121118-6975-ojpeio
Most "muscle twitches" involving eyelid are secondary to myokymia, which is a benign flickering, usually associated with eyestrain, fatigue, stress, bright sunshine, etc. But blepharospam may explain your twitch, and, if painful, or increasingly uncomfortable, have your eye specialist evaluate, and treat as appropriate.

Myokymia

Stringio
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. It can be caused by stress, dry eyes, lack of sleep.
