In brief: Probably not
Your eyes run the same 24/7/365, awake or asleep.
You may feel tired after concentrating for a long time, but your eyes are just as ready to work as they ever are. Involuntary eye movements are rare. Twitching of the lids may come from stress, excess caffeine, or certain medications.
