Can extraocular muscles twitch? Is it possible for eyelid twitching to make it seem as if your vision is jumpy? How to tell the two twitches apart?

Yes. Eyelid twich is myokymia and does not cause the vision to shake. Some acquired extraocular muscle twitches can cause oscillopsia where the vision jiggles. If it persists more than three months you would need a systemic work up. Meanwhile try to get more rest and decrease caffeine intake.
