What Is an Eyelid Spasm?

The three most common types of eyelid spasms are eyelid twitch, essential blepharospasm, and hemifacial spasm.

The symptoms described above may not necessarily mean that you have eyelid spasms. However, if you experience one or more of these symptoms, contact your ophthalmologist for a complete exam.

Essential blepharospasm usually occurs more commonly in females and at a later age.

These conditions are distinguished by a careful clinical examination. Rarely, hemifacial spasm is caused by a tumor pressing on the facial nerve, found with MRI testing.
