The above works for me on the rare occasion when I am afflicted with this problem. Hasn't happened for a long, long time, though.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

I had it while I was still w*rking ... Have not had it lately.
I mentioned it to my friend who is a doctor and he said it was from lack of sleep. I concur ... I was getting 4 or 5 hours of sleep when I was w*rking and sleep deprived. When I started forcing myself to get more hours, my twitching stopped. When I got back into bad habits (and stress) it came back. Now that I am FIREd and go to sleep when I am tired and wake when I am no longer sleepy, I no longer have eye twitching,

Life is GREAT!

I've been reading now the past two weeks with reader glasses and my eye twitch has gone away completely. I had read several months ago that eye strain was a cause, but I guess I was interpreting eye strain like weight lifting strain. I have to accept the fact that I am of age where I need readers. I just assumed I would need them when everything became a blur. Eye straining is more subtle obviously. I can still read without glasses, but I guess not easily enough without them. I've also learned why people have the readers dangling at the end of their nose too!
