    It can be caused by lack of sleep, too much stress, caffeine or the combination of these. Everytime when I don't have enough sleep, my eyes will twitch.

    Fatigue, stress, and caffeine are the most common reasons to cause eye twitching. In such case, the eyelid may repeatedly close and re-open. It may come and go for a few days and finally disappear by itself.

    Maybe it caused by stress or eye fatigue. In this case, you should get more time to relax your eyes. Don't overuse your eyes. Lack of sleep may also cause eye twitch. So don't stay up late and try to go to bed as early as possible.
