2. Eyelid Twitching
A twitching eyelid is super annoying. Anyone that has experienced this will testify to that! You also think that everyone else can see it twitching which makes it even more uncomfortable. According to Women’s Health, eyelid twitching typically occurs in one eye and lasts for a few minutes. It’s usually caused by stress, but experts aren’t really sure why.
The best way to combat a twitching eyelid is to try and relax. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. “Inhale for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds, then exhale for eight seconds,” suggests Women’s Health. “Repeat this four times while using a fingertip to put mild pressure on the lid that’s twitching.”
If that doesn’t work, there are some over-the-counter medications that can help. The source talked to Anne Sumers, M.D., of the American Academy of Ophthalmology who says artificial tears may also help ease the spasms. If the twitching spreads to other areas in the eye, go see a physician.
