"Dr. Schlessinger is a perfectionist! He is extremely dedicated to his patient's care. I travel from Florida to receive care for my eyes. He is very respected by his peers and patients. I would not trust anyone else with the care of my eyes. I had severe punctual stenosis. My procedure was pain free and very successful! I would recommend him for any procedure!"
"So grateful they got me in on the "day of." They saved me a lot of pain and aggravation."

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.
