Eye twitching from the point of view of Ayurveda
- Minor eyelid twitch. It is often linked to everyday things like fatigue, stress, or caffeine. This may also be due to an irritated eye surface (cornea) or membranes covering the eyelids (conjunctiva).
- Essential blepharospasm. It usually appears in mid- to late-adulthood and worsens over time. It starts with nonstop blinking or eye irritation. As it gets worse, you may become sensitive to light, have blurry vision, and facial spasms.
- Hemifacial spasm. It affects the muscles around your mouth and eyelids. Unlike the other two types, it typically impacts only one side of the face and is caused by an artery pressing on a facial nerve.
