Twitching will begin and disappear in a few minutes or even a several weeks. There are many reasons which can lead to eye twitching, Drinking too much alcohol is one of them. Many experts believe that too much alcohol can trigger eye twitches,and it might become more frequent if you has had an excess amount of alcohol. Even if it is a common phenomenon, a doctor's visit is necessary if the twitching continues for a several weeks without stopping, it will also affect the other part of the face twitching. Except that, Botox injections will be helpful to stop the muscles contractions.

    Excessive and poorly regulated use of alcohol can cause eye twitching, due to hyper-stimulation of nerve ending that are responsible for motor control. It is highly recommended to cut down your intake of these stimulants if you are experiencing persistent eye twitching.

    Yes, drinking alcohol cause eye twitches because the increase amount of alcohol as well as caffeine in your body can make some disorders on your eyes due to the system change in your body.
