6 reasons why your eye is twitching
    2018-05-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

我们的眼皮为什么会跳?

Stress

This is the number-one reason for a twitching eye, according to ophthalmologists. When we’re under a lot of pressure, the body releases stress hormones (cortisol) which triggers a “fight or flight” response. One immediate consequence is muscle arousal, which may affect eyelid muscles as well. This may be a good time to see your friends, unwind, or meditate in order to reduce the stress that might be causing the twitching eye.

Fatigue

Not getting enough sleep or working too much overtime may cause your eye to complain. Scientists aren’t sure why, but they’ve found that getting more rest will make the symptoms subside.

Dry eyes

More and more people work office jobs that involve a lot of sitting and staring at a computer screen. This sort of lifestyle can lead to dry eye syndrome (DES). Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. When our eyes are too dry, they might involuntarily start twitching to keep them moisturized. This repeated blinking can trick the brain into making one or both eyes twitch even more. To avoid DES, use eye drops if you use the computer for more than seven hours a day and make sure to look away from the screen at least once every 20 minutes.

Caffeine and alcohol

Caffeine and alcohol have seemingly polar effects on the body. One is a stimulant while the other is an inhibitor — but both can bring a twitching eye when used in excess. It’s important to stay hydrated and to avoid real or artificial sugars when this happens.

Mineral deficiencies

A jumping eye might be triggered by a magnesium deficiency. If the twitch persists, it’s a good idea to get your magnesium levels checked with a simple blood test. If you really are magnesium deficient, you should focus on eating more foods like almonds, oatmeal or spinach. You can also take magnesium supplements to meet daily Mg needs.

Eyelid infection

Blepharitis occurs when bacteria infect your eyelids, causing inflammation and redness. This makes the muscles around the eye twitchy. The treatment of blepharitis should begin with a visit with your eye doctor to determine the cause of your sore, red, itchy eyelids.

压力

眼科医师表示,压力是引起眼皮跳的最主要因素。当我们感受到很大压力时,身体会释放压力荷尔蒙,引发“战或逃”反应。该反应最直接的结果是肌肉被唤醒,从而可能影响眼睑肌肉。对于你而言,这是一个探望朋友、放松或者冥想以减轻压力的好时机。

疲劳

得不到足够睡眠或者加班过多可能会让你的眼睛“抱怨”。科学家们并不确定其中的原因,但他们发现多休息能减轻症状。

眼干涩

越来越多的人在办公室里工作,需要长时间坐着并盯着电脑屏幕。这种生活方式会导致干眼症。干眼症由眼睛表面长期缺乏润滑和滋润导致。当我们的眼睛太干燥时,它们也许会通过自发的眼皮跳动来保持湿润。眼睛不停眨会影响大脑,让一只或者两只眼睛的眼皮跳动更频繁。为了避免干眼症,如果你每天用电脑的时间超过七小时,那么你可以使用滴眼液,并确保自己每隔二十分钟让眼睛至少休息一次。

咖啡因和酒精

咖啡因和酒精对身体似乎有两极性影响。一种是兴奋作用而另外一种是抑制作用,而它们在饮用过量的时候都会导致眼皮乱跳。这时你需要补水并避免食用天然糖或者人造糖。

缺乏矿物质

眼皮乱跳可能由缺镁导致。如果眼皮一直乱跳,那么你可以通过简单的血液测试来检查体内的镁含量。如果缺镁,就要多吃杏仁、燕麦片和菠菜,还可以服用镁补充剂来满足日常镁需求。

眼睑感染

眼睑有细菌感染时,就会患上睑缘炎,它会导致眼睛发炎和红肿。这会导致眼睛周围的肌肉颤动。这时你应该去看眼科医生,了解眼睑肿痛发痒的病因。
