Beyond the Blink: Understanding and Managing Eye Twitches

Have you ever experienced a quick, repetitive fluttering in your eyelid? That annoying little tic is what we call an eye twitch. It can be a distracting and even embarrassing experience, especially as we get older. While eye twitches are usually harmless, they can still throw you off your game when trying to concentrate or even affect your self-confidence in a social setting. Let's look into why those pesky twitches happen and how to manage them.

What Causes Those Eye Twitches?

Several factors can trigger an eye twitch. Let's explore some of the most common culprits:

Stress Overload

When stress takes over, our bodies react in various ways, including muscle tension that can manifest as an eye twitch.

Sleep Deprivation

Not getting enough rest strains the eyes and our entire system, making us more susceptible to twitching.

Eye Strain

Staring at screens for hours or trying to make do with an outdated glasses prescription strains our eyes and can cause twitching.

Dry Eyes 

A lack of lubrication makes eyes more sensitive and prone to twitching.

Caffeine and Alcohol

These substances can dehydrate the body and act as stimulants, potentially triggering muscle spasms like eye twitches.


When allergens irritate the eyes, it can lead to itchiness and twitching.

Treating Eye Twitches

In most cases, eye twitches will go away on their own. Here are a few simple remedies to try:

Warm Compress

A warm compress to the affected eye can soothe and relax the muscles.

Eye Drops

Over-the-counter lubricating eye drops can help with dryness.

Quality Sleep

Get a good night's sleep and give your eyes a break from screens.

Stress Relief

Find stress-management techniques that work for you.

When to Call the Doc  

If the twitch is severe, lasts for a long time, affects other areas of your face, or your eye turns red, gets swollen, or has discharge, it's time to consult an eye doctor.

Prevention is Key

Stress Management

Find healthy ways to de-stress, like exercise, meditation, or simply relaxing.

Eye Care

Get regular eye exams and make sure your glasses prescription is up-to-date. Prevent digital eye strain by taking breaks from screens and consider protective eyewear.

Good Habits

Aim for restful sleep, a healthy diet, and stay hydrated.


Though often harmless, eye twitches can be a nuisance. Understanding what triggers them and knowing treatment options empowers you to manage the situation. Taking steps to prevent eye twitching, such as managing stress and looking after your eye health, can make a big difference.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
