    Yes, it is possible for you to get eye twitching because of depression. When you get depression, your immune system will be low. Your eyes may easily get infection because of the coming invisible bacterium. That is the real reason for the eye twitching. You could use some eye drops to get rid of the bacterium and make your eyes get moisture. At the same time, the warm compress is also a good way.
