    Well, yes, it is possible to have eye twitching because of head trauma. As we know that when you suffer from the head injury, it can be easy to affect your eyes, leading to some eye problems. For example, it can just cause eye twitching. Also, you may have trouble focusing your eyes when switching your gaze between near and far objects. Also, double vision can occur too. Some symptoms, such as headaches or sensitivity to light, and words on a page may appear to move will occur too. so when you have head injury, it is important to see a doctor who can make sure that your eyes and brain are still working properly, and then have some suggestion for you.

    Yes, it is possible to have eye twitching because of head trauma. Eye twitching is eyelids spasm with rapid frequency and it is out of control. It can happen to one eye or both eyes. It is named as blepharospasm which implies a disorder that nervous system signals muscle to contract inappropriate. Eye twitching might happen with some other symptoms such as watering eyes, irritated or red eyes or eyelids. Common causes for eye twitching include corneal irritation or injury, fatigue, eye dryness, poor sleeping, anxiety or stress, neurological disorder and pro-longed staring or eye strain. Head trauma could cause injury to eyes, so corneal irritation or injury and neurological disorder might be caused by head trauma. Trauma in head or eyes could cause great impact to eyes because eyes tissues are soft and fragile.
