In brief: Many options

Treatment depends on the cause of the spasm. Make sure your electrolytes are normal.
If it was caused by too much eye straining, try to relax. Get a good night sleep. In severe cases, Botox injectons can help (approved to treat blepharospasm). Most cases will resolve on its own or with relaxation. If not, check with your doc to discuss other options.

In brief: Warm compresses

Try a warm compress; but without examining you it is difficult to comment.
..See your doctor for an examination so he/she can put eyes on target.
