Question: Can lack of sleep cause twitching eye?
Answer: Lack of sleep is a known cause of eye twitches and is one of the more common causes. It’s important to get 8 hours of sleep a night (varies slightly from person to person and exhaustion level) but also deep and restful sleep that is uninterrupted. Our sleep cycle essentially involves falling deeper and deeper into sleep and then a gradual waking process. If you’re woken up in the middle of the deep sleep part of the night you won’t actually be getting the rest you need even if you are spending the appropriate amount of hours asleep.
