In brief: Dry eye twitching

A common cause of eyelid or eye twitching is dry eye.
A trial of artificial tears +/- omega 3 vitamins often relieves the symptoms. More serious causes of eyelid twitching should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist if the symptoms do not resolve with tears. http://fleye.com/store/artificial-tears/retaine-mgd.html.
