In brief: Lid twitch

Episodic twitching of an eyelid(s) can be associated w fatigue, caffiene, dry eye, or irritation.
It can be lessened by resting the eyes.

In brief: Not much

Twitching of the eyelids is very common, and some say it's related to caffeine, but the association is very weak.
If there is involvement of the face, you need to see a neurologist to rule out a rare disease where the facial nerve is being compressed.
