"Dr. Schlessinger and his staff have balanced being professional and friendly, making me feel as if I am the only patient (when of course I am not because Dr. Schlessinger is an excellent doctor)!"
"Staff moved me efficiently for step-by-step testing in appropriate rooms. When meeting with the doctor, he was attentive to my comments. In turn, he advised me of my condition and action to be taken. His pronouncements were thorough and clearly understood."
it hasnt stopped for about a month now
There are many reasons that an eyelid can twitch. Most of the time it is due to local irritation and goes away spontaneously. Warm compresses and keeping the eyelid clean can help alleviate the problem. Other people can have twitching due to dry or irritated eyes and the use of lubricating drops may help.
In rare cases twitiching can be caused be neurologic problems such as essential blepharospasm or hemi-facial spasm. This requires a more through work up and treatments can vary.
A good rule of thumb is if the eyelid twitching does not resolve after a week or two, you should see a board certified Ophthalmologist or Oculoplastic Surgeon.
