Mystery Eye Twitching...

Has your eye ever twitched uncontrollably? 
This can last a day or two or sometimes as many as 2 or 3 weeks.
What’s actually twitching is the bottom eyelid.  It is a type of muscle spasm.
Officially called blepharospasm, it is completely harmless…but really, quite annoying. 
Why does this happen, anyway?
The exact reason our eyes twitch is not known, but the experts do have a few ideas.
Check out this list:
Eyelid twitching tends to occur when…
  • We are under stress
  • We consume too much caffeine
  • We don’t get enough sleep
  • We stare at a computer screen too long
