When Should I See a Doctor about an Eyelid Twitch?
The most common reasons for eyelid twitches are fatigue, stress, and caffeine overdose. If you are a smoker, that can also increase your risk of developing a twitch as well. Usually, eye twitches pass within a few days, but they can last longer.
To prevent eye twitches, address the most common causes to help resolve the issue sooner: dehydration and improper electrolyte imbalance. Cutting back on caffeine, drinking more water, eating fruits high in potassium (bananas are usually a patient favorite), or having a sports drink can help.
While annoying, your eye twitch should pass in a few days, maybe sooner, if you follow the above recommendations. If the twitch lasts longer than a couple of weeks, contact Complete Eye Care of Medina for further recommendations.
