How to Stop Eye Twitching

Why do my eyes twitch? We’ve all had this happen at one point or another.  Maybe you stayed up late studying or perhaps you stared at your computer for hours on end.  Either way, eye twitching can be extremely annoying and hard to get rid of.  Most of us don’t require medical attention for involuntary eye twitching.

  1. Start with hard blinking. Close your eyes as tight as possible. Squeeze them as much as you can and then suddenly open up unexpectedly wide. Execute this type of blinking until the tears burst out of your eyes.
  2. Massage lightly your bottom eyelids in a circular motion using your middle fingers.
  3. Blink for a half a minute. Try to do that with adequate speed, and at the same time, make the movements very light. Imagine that your eyelashes are butterfly’s wings. The process of blinking is extremely important to your eyes – it relaxes most of the eye muscles, lubricates and cleanses the eyeballs.
  4. Close your eyes halfway down. You will notice that your upper eyelids constantly tremble with different amplitude. Concentrate your efforts on stopping this trembling.
  5. Blink for a minute with your eyes closed.
  6. Spend 2 minutes to give yourself an Acupressure Massage.
  7. If you can do any Eye Hydrotherapy Procedures.
  8. Read the original article on wikihow.com
    Eye twitching can occur under the eye or in the upper eyelid and it can affect the right or left eye.  Eye twitching causes include Benign Essential Blepharospasm (which isn’t harmful), dry eyes, Tourette’s syndrome and strained eyes. Eye twitching should not be confused with drooping eyes which requires serious medical attention as soon as possible.

    When to Contact Your Optometrist

    Taking good care of your eyes is extremely important, so if you’re experiencing an eye twitch that lasts more than seven days, results in your eye being permanently shut, moves into your entire face, causes redness or swelling and/or changes into a drooping eyelid, contact your Optometrist right away.  Please feel free to contact our in-house 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore Optometrist who will be more than happy to see you as soon as possible.

How to Make Your Eyes Stop Hurting After Swimming

When you come back from the pool, you may notice that your eyes are red and burn. This is probably because of the chlorine in the pool that you went to. To learn how to treat this annoying problem, there is a solution.

How to Make Your Eyes Stop Hurting After Swimming

  1. Tell which eye hurts the worst. Decide which one stings the most and burns the most. This is because only one eye can be treated at a time with this method. If both of your eyes hurt equally, then it doesn’t matter which eye you choose to treat first. Try not to do both eyes at once, which might worsen the problem.
  2. Go to a sink. It doesn’t matter if the sink belongs to the pool staff or if it’s at your house. Push the handle that releases hot water. Slowly bend down into the sink, with your eyes facing the ceiling.
  3. Put your eye directly under the water. Don’t let the water be too cold or hot. Try to open it if the water isn’t running at too fast of a speed. Let the water wash out the chlorine that was in your eye by keeping your eye there for a few minutes. ‘Do not put soap on your eye, as this will cause the irritation to grow worse.
  4. Change which eye is under the sink. If your left eye was there first, put your right eye under now. Or, if your right eye was under the water first, put your left eye under second. Leave this eye under the sink for a few minutes as well, and follow the same procedure at you did for your first eye.
  5. Dry off your eyes with a towel. Make sure you do not dry them off with the beach towel you were using, as this is wet with chlorine from the pool. If your beach towel that you brought along has not been used yet, then it is alright to dry your eyes off on that towel.
  6. If you have eye drops use them, but don’t over use them.

Tips

  • Don’t go into the pool anymore for the day after you follow this procedure. If you do, then you will have to keep doing this over and over again, which could just make your eyes hurt more.
  • If you are a parent with a child that is too short to bend into the sink, try wetting a paper towel or washcloth with warm water from the sink. Have your child place this over their eye for a few minutes. Then, switch the eye it is over.
  • Try wearing goggles next time to avoid this problem.
  • Try starting to wear goggles before you go into the water.
  • Never open your eyes if the water has a lot of chlorine.
  • Feel your eyes. Make sure they are not hot. If they are, flush them out with water for 5 minutes.
  • If you  are facing any eye problem contact your optometrist.
