Question: Can looking at computer screen for too long cause eyelid to twitch?
Answer: One of the possible causes of eye twitching is straining your eyes. Staring at a computer screen for long periods of times means that the eye is constantly focused at a certain distance that never changes. This is stressful and strains our eyes because they are designed to be constantly shifting and focusing at different depths in our field of vision. One simple treatment for this is to take a 1-2 minute break every 15 minutes of computer use and focus on objects around the room or even better out a window. Just give your eyes a chance to focus on things closer than the screen and farther than the screen before continuing your computer use.
