Eye twitching usually goes away on its own within a few days or weeks with rest, stress relief, and decreased caffeine.

See a doctor if:
- Lasts more than a few weeks
- Eyelid completely closes with each twitch or difficulty opening eye
- Twitching in other parts of face or body
- Eye redness, swelling, or discharge
- Drooping eyelids
