  • I found that eye twitching can be triggered by stress, tiredness (fatigue), eye strain, caffeine or alcohol, dry eyes, nutritional imbalances and allergies. There are so many causes of eye twitching. So we must first figure out the cause and then deal with it. If your eye twitching is caused by stress, tiredness or fatigue, eye strain, you can solve your problem by relaxing your self and get enough sleep in the night. If your eye twitching is caused by caffeine or alcohol, I suggest you to cut back the amount. Dry eye is quite common among people especially among computer users and the older population. We can treat this by applying some medical treatment. If it is not very serious, we can use artificial tears to relieve the symptom. And a lack of certain nutritional substances such as magnesium can trigger eyelid spasms. You can talk with your doctor for expert advice first.

  • Usually our eyesight decreases slowly. But if we adapt the correct way to maintain the health of our eyes, the eyesight may remain the same. So if you find that your eyesight decrease dramatically or you suffer from blurred vision occasionally, you'd better see an eye doctor immediately. Sometimes, these symptoms can be a warning sign of some kind of serious eye disease of health problems. Doctors can recognize them for you timely.

  • If you think there are some flashes of light like fireworks going off in your side vision and when you try to look to the flashes, you can't look directly at them, because they move in the direction you try to look at. They may or may not be accompanied by floating spots in your vision. Floaters, as they are called, can be anything from the condensing of the vitreous humor within the eye to a total detachment. Some people actually see a wavy line in their vision, half their vision disappear or lose total vision in the eye which detached. If you experience any of these symptoms or think you are experiencing any of these symptoms, see your eye doctor immediately and he can rule out whether you had a detachment. Emergency surgery can save your eye, but waiting can cause you to lose most of your vision in the affected eye.

  • Yes, that's right. It works as cool compress. Put a spoon in the refrigerator for some time until it is cold and freezed. Then take it out and apply to your eyes. Don't forget to close your eye when you put the spoon on it. Keep the spoon on your eye for about 10 minutes. When you finish, repeat all these steps to the other eye.

  • Maybe you are tired or you are drunk, since I have the same problem once I am tired enough and drunk. If you do not have these problem, it may be caused by the eye problem. So please go to see a doctor immediately.

  • computer glasses are eyeglasses specially designed for people who spend lots of time in front of computer. The main purpose of computer glasses is to protect eyes from reflective light and disorder light from computer screen so as to give wears the best comfortable vision. And to help people with poor vision, prescription computer glasses are available. Different from regular glasses prescription, the prescription for computer glasses are specially made to help people see computer (about 1-3feets distance).

  • You can turn your back to the shower and wash your hair so that the shampoo can run down your back, rather than across your face. Or you can go to a barbershop and they will wash your hair without leaving shampoo water in your eyes.

  • Yeah,the bad mood will affect your vision indirectly. Once you are sad or are not happy, you may have tears in your eyes when remembering the sad past. The long time crying may make your eyes dry. In addition, the eye pressures will not be stable. You'd better keep good mood every day.

  • When it does not go away, it is called blepharospasm.
    In February 1993, I began blinking excessively and uncontrollably. As it became worse, I went
    to a number of eye doctors. They all agreed that my vision was not impaired and thought the
    problem was dry eye and prescribed drops. They did not help. The others thought the cause
    was nerves, but it was not that either.

    My Blepharospasm Symptoms Intensify

    When I coached my sons' basketball games, I not only would miss half of the games caused by
    the blinking; I would wear a baseball cap and sunglasses to hide my eyes.

    When at a restaurant, my sons, sitting opposite me, would turn away to avoid looking at my
    eyes twitching. They joked about it, not realizing the discomfort and embarrassment I felt. My
    wife had to do the weekend driving since I could not. The eye twitching always seemed to
    intensify when I was in a moving vehicle. It did not matter if I was driving or someone else. My
    90 mile daily round trip to work became a nightmare. Thankfully, I was able to avoid having any
    accidents.

    Two Years and Not a Solution

    Two years later, I was quite concerned and upset. By this time my quality of life had become
    worse. Being a corporate controller, I felt my future and family%u2019s financial security were
    threatened.

    In June, 1995, I found a local doctor who diagnosed my symptoms as a rare neurological
    disorder called Blepharospasm. It is the result of %u201Cfaulty%u201D brain signals sent to the optic
    muscles, forcing them to contract, hence the twitching. With the cause being unknown, there
    was no hope of relief. (I would later find relief by accident). It is not life-threatening but
    could be debilitating. In the worst cases, the sufferer would be considered legally blind even
    though their vision may be 20-20.

    Injecting Botox Resulted in Some Relief

    A neurologist told me that the preferred treatment was injecting small doses of Botox
    (Botulinum toxin) into the eyelids. This would later become popular to get rid of wrinkles. My
    wife became very concerned when we learned from the neurologist that it was Botulinum that
    would be injected into my eyelids. I said, %u201CI came for relief so let's do it.%u201D I was never fond of
    injections, but relief was my first priority.

    The Botox took several days to be effective and did provide some relief. However, the affect on
    my smile was strange and it made my eyes look artificial. It cost about $400 and lasted only
    six weeks, although most people experienced relief for six months. After my second treatment, I
    began to question the future affect. I went for a second opinion and when I could not
    be assured of its safety, I decided to stop.

    A Healthy Solution Seemed Hopeful

    Several weeks later, I learned of a powerful, natural and organic whole food supplement. It's a
    one of a kind whole food that is loaded with nutrition. I decided to try it.

    When I would back out of my driveway to go to work, the spasms would begin. They would not
    stop until the car was parked. Six weeks after taking this natural health food, my wife made me
    realize that I had not had any spasms all week. I said, "Could it be that the Blepharospasm is
    caused from a nutritional deficiency?"

    The Quest to Prove That I Had Found an Alternative Solution That Really Worked

    I spent the next twelve years trying to convince the medical community that I had discovered
    something remarkable. No one would listen. During this time I did introduce the food to sixteen
    individuals with Blepharospasm and seven told me it helped them.

    Sometime later I was offered a double-blind study at the Wilmer Eye Opthomological Institute of
    the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. I was overwhelmed and
    flattered. Six years later the results of the study, where I was mentioned twice, was published.
    The article appeared in The Journal of Ophthalmology, July, 2004 Issue Volume 138; Issue
    1 pages 18 %u2013 32.

    It was stated to me that %u201CThe food is safe and I expect it to help many more people. I would
    recommend it for all who wish to try it for several months.%u201D

    The results noted that the food was safe, helped some, with no side effects.

    Helping Other Blepharospasm Sufferers Get Relief

    People are still suffering and happily I am still near symptom-free. Perhaps now is the time I
    will be heard.

    In the summer of 2005 I received an honor from the Dystonia Foundation being recognized
    with a 2005 Courage Award. It was received for inspiring people with my vitality. Dystonia is the
    name of movement disorders with Blepharospasm being one of six.

    I believe now is the time to resurrect what I thought was my calling %u2013 to give relief to sufferers.
    Since the Internet has become mainstream, it became clear the sufferers would be better
    served by reaching out to them instead of the medical community.

    There are two factors to accomplish better health. They are cleansing and nutrition. Cleansing
    is necessary to free the body of toxins and other harmful chemicals. Nutrition will nourish the
    body to strengthen it and provide improved functioning.

    I am very proud of the fact that during the last several years I have helped nearly 40
    sufferers and the list keeps growing weekly. I am also happy about the fact that I have
    now reached 26 countries and 49 states.
