Welcome to icliniq.com.
You seem to be suffering from what we call myokymia. It is a benign twitching of the eyelids. It has been known to be associated with dry eye and other ocular surface disorders. The other know factors which cause and aggravate it are drinking coffee or tea, working outdoor or exposure to pollution, and less sleep.
So my advice to you:
- Continue all the medication you are on currently. The season now is very hot and arid and can aggravate dry eye, so there is nothing wrong with you needing more lubricant and using them.
- Avoid coffee or tea.
- Get at least eight hours of sleep a day.
- Give hot fomentation to both eyes over closed eyelids.
- Continue taking omega 3 fatty acid capsules, they are a diet supplement and are safe to take.
I would recommend seeing a doctor in case:
- Your eyelid twitching becomes worse over time with no improvement.
- In case other parts of your face and body start moving out of your control along with your eyelid.
- In case the twitching becomes severe enough that even with your best efforts you are not able to open your closed eyelid.
I hope you get well soon.
