Benign essential blepharospasm can be accompanied or preceded by eye disorders such as dry eyes, blurry eyes, more sensitive to light, conjunctivitis, uveitis, blepharitis. If it continues then there can be spasms on one side of the face,
Because of disorders of the nerves and brain such as: bell's palsy, dystonia, parkinsonism, side effects of antidepressant drugs and anti-epileptic drugs
If twitching occurs continuously for weeks, the eyelids become difficult to open, there are visual disturbances, red eyes, watery, it is better for you to see an ophthalmologist so that the doctor can do a direct examination.
