  • It happens to me usually when I'm really concentrating on something if it happens a lot I'd talk to your doc. It usually is just strain on you're eyes that causes this.

  • I believe it is a symptom arising from nerve signals that fire sporadically and affect the muscle in eye lids, legs, feet, etc. This can be due to dehydration in most cases or lack of sleep or anxiety. I have been suffering this for years. I now can mentally stop this from happening. I learned this since the cramps were out of control. Meditation was the key for me. I can now visualize and cause the spasm to "move" and then make it disappear altogether!

  • I have had something similar ,went to eye doctor and had tests , was told it is the eyes trying to focus and nothing to worry about.Mostly mine was looking at shelves in supermarket.

  • If it's just a sensation, it could be some kind of neuropathy, although I've never heard of anything like that. It could also be an ocular myoclonus, or a jerk or twitching in the muscles that control eye movement. That can be caused by a virus, autoimmune condition, or as part of a paraneoplastic syndrome, so it's worth talking to your doctor about it.
