In brief: Hemifacial spasm

If the eye is forcibly closing with a contraction of the same side of the face and an upward moving of the lip then this may be hemifacial spasm. This is usually a benign condition but evaluation by an eyemd is needed to rule out associated eye or neurological pathology.

In brief: Twitches

Small twitches at the corner of the mouth or of the eyelids occasionally occur when we are stressed (tired, emotionally strained, etc.
). Although they are annoying, they usually disappear within a few weeks. Rest, cool compresses, identifying and decreasing the stressor can all help. If the twitches become severe, painful or so not resolve, see your doctor.
