I am 61 years of age and my eye keeps flickering. Is this something I should see the doctor about?
Most cases of isolated eye flickering (otherwise known as
blepharospasm), lasts for short periods only and does not require
further tests or treatment. It may be caused by tiredness or stress, but
could also be caused by other eye conditions such as infection, injury
If the spasm continues, becoming chronic and distressing,
further treatment may be required. If the spasm of the eye is
associated with spasms of other parts of the face/body or a drooping
eyelid, you should see your doctor for further assessment.
