My left eye has been twitching for a week. Ive read online it can be caused by stress, eye strain, being over tired, and other things. Has this happened to you? What was the cause? How long did it take for it to go away?

Eye strain and low potassium levels were pretty much the culprits for me. I spend a lot of time staring at screens so a break from that and some bananas usually helps me out.

Good luck. :)

My husband gets those eye twitches. For him I think it is a combination of stress and eye strain from staring at a computer screen all day.  I just asked him how long it lasts and he told me weeks, but then again he is a man and tends to exaggerate.  I read somewhere about applying warm compresses.   I did not know about the bananas, I will have him try that too.  Good luck

I have the same issue. It started right around Christmas and hasn't went away. No clue what is causing it or why? I have been considering going to the eye Dr.

Yes it happened to me for a couple weeks. It was due to stress.

I have eye twitches often,and usually lasts for several days at a time but mine is due to eye strain (bad vision due to eye condition)

I just had to take steroids for this issue. In my case I believe it was stress.
