    Yes, chemotherapy can cause eye twitching. My eyes started twitching after my second chemo treatment. It is so annoying especially when I'm trying to sleep. From what I've read, it will go away after the chemo is over. Hallelujah!

    Yes, chemo will cause eye twitching because of the stimulation at the eyes nerves. In order to make the symptom of eye twitching get released, you could use the eye drops. At the same time, I strongly suggest you to do the home remedy of warm compress which will be so workable and effective. You could have a try.

    Chemo, which is short for chemotherapy, is typically treated by Cisplatin, Carboplatin, Neulasta, Taxotere. People who have taken a chemo may suffer from certain symptoms and complications that come along with the chemo, such as febrile neutropenia, agranulocytosis, fever, breathing difficulty, bone pain, nausea. Sometimes, it is possible that chemo may as well cause eye twitching in some cases. However, there are some other reasons for eye twitching. In addition, it can as well be a symptom of blepharospasm, which may develop into facial twitching when the condition becomes serious. Therefore, people who have got the eye twitching had better go to the doctor's for an over all examination to find out the exact reason and the correspondent treatment.
