Do you mean that your eyelid flutter? If yes, since when did it start? And is it regularly or on/off?
Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
Most commonly, increased eye blinking results from
-eye causes such as
Allergies,Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid margin),Conjunctivitis(inflammation of the eye surface),Contact lens wear,Corneal abrasion or ulcer,Dry eyes,Exposure to irritants such as smoke, smog or dust,Foreign body in the eye
-Conditions of stress, anxiety or fatigue may lead to increased blinking.
-Tiredness Eye strain,Caffeine,Alcohol,Nutritional imbalances
Increased blinking, especially in children, may be a type of facial tic. Congenital glaucoma is a rare cause of increased blinking.
Eye blinking symptoms may also be caused by conditions occurring in the nervous system.
A severe decrease in blinking is seen chiefly in Parkinson’s disease, a brain disorder that impairs movement and coordination.
Treating the cause is the key for the treatment ,
Some Treatment instructions :
-dry eyes must be treated with the necessary medications
- If your blinking is caused by emotional tension, learning how to cope with stress may ease your symptoms.
-Wear dark glasses. Some people find their symptoms worsen when in bright sunlight, so keep your eyes shaded
-Undergo a cycle of botulinum toxin, brand name Botox, injections. This can weaken or relax the muscles involved in excessive blinking without interfering with normal eye closure. Treatment is only once every three months.
-if nothing above help there are other medication and if it fails then there is a surgery
