In brief: Fasciculations

It is not uncommon to develop involuntary contractions of the eyelids, called fasciculations.
These are mild, sometimes described as vibrations of the lids and tend to disappear after days or weeks. If the contractions are strong or painful, it is called blepharospasm and may require medical evaluation to determine the cause and treatment options.
