According to, there are eight main causes of eye twitching. The top causes include:

  • Stress
  • Tiredness
  • Eye Strain
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Dry Eyes
  • Nutritional Imbalance
  • Allergies

More often than not, twitching is not a serious medical condition, just your body expressing some sort of fatigue.

However, occasionally twitching can be caused by neurological conditions. These conditions should be diagnosed by an eye doctor.
