In brief: ? Eyelid infection
Involuntary twitches, or myokymia, often result from muscle irritation due to adjacent infection.
The eyelids are susceptible to these due to the close proximity of oil glands and muscle elements. Lid hygiene, including warm compresses and topical antibiotic steroid drops or ointment will often relieve this, although it can recur if maintenance treatment is not done.
