- Side Effect of medication :especially medications for psychosis, epilepsis, if you noticed that your eye is twitching when starting a medication of any kind, consult your doctor.
- Too much caffeine :It’s hard to start a morning without a cup of coffee, it wakes you up, but if you’re a coffee-holic you must know that coffeine can causes eyelid spasm. Try to replace your caffeine doze with tea every once in a while.
