Eye Diseases


Blepharospasm (Eyelid spasm):
It is considered one of the most common cases, it is mild and harmless and does not affect vision, and it occurs suddenly when there is an involuntary spasm or slight movement in the upper or lower eyelid, and it can last for minutes, hours, days, or even longer, and often stops without intervention.


  • Extreme exhaustion and sleep deprivation.
  • Exposure to stress and tension.
  • Consuming a large amount of caffeine (e.g.: tea and coffee).
  • Eye dryness and irritation.
  • Side effect when taking some medicines.

When to see a doctor:

  • When you notice that the eyelid continues to twitch or feel uncomfortable for more than two weeks.
  • When there is a shiver in more than one place in the body.
  • A feeling of weakness in the area affected by weakness or stiffness.

Blepharospasm may come and go on its own, but it usually stops within a few days or weeks, and there is usually no treatment for it, but there are some tips that can be done:

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Try to find ways to relax.
  • Massage spasmodic muscles slowly.
  • Avoid consuming caffeine.
