The Causes for eye Twitching

Blepharospasm develops in mid to late adulthood and there are about 2000 cases every year in the US alone. It’s a condition which is more common in women than in men
If it discovered on time it is not serious. But if the condition progresses you might feel extra sensitivity to light, blurry vision and even your entire face to start twitching.
