Are you annoyed due to your eye twitching?

There are seveal alternatives that can help to eliminate the twitching such as, 

  1. Relaxing and try to eliminate stress in your daily life.
  2. Limit caffeine.
  3. Sleep
  4. Apply warm compresses to the twitching eye and then gently massage the eyelid with your fingers.

One main treatemnt that can help is Botox.

Botox is used to treat muscle problems and uncontrolled eyelid twitching (blepharospasm).

Blepharospasm are involuntary spasms of the muscles around the eye, resulting in uncontrollable blinking, narrowing, and even closing of the eyelid. It can be very annoying at times.

Botox is the best form of treatment. Injections weaken the muscles that control the eyelid, helping to relieve any spasms. The effects of Botox usually last for about 3-4 months, and after that shall be repeated.
