Can an eye injury cause a twitch?

Question: Can an eye injury cause a twitch?

Answer: Injuries to the eyes isn’t a particular common cause of twitching but theoretically it’s possible due to the possibility of a pinched nerve. This would mainly be in a situation where some kind of physical trauma has occured to the general eye area though rather than an injury to the eye specifically. For example getting hit in the eye with a baseball or something that could cause sufficient trauma to produce a pinched nerve. Twitching is a result of nerve impulses firing involuntarily which results in the spasm in the muscle group controlled by that malfunctioning nerve so any twitch would have to develop from a problem relating to the nervous system or localized nerves rather than the eye itself.
