If you notice eye irritation while outside or around pets, you may have ocular (eye) allergies. Also, if you have other allergies that you regularly treat, you may notice that your eyes get involved during peak periods such as pollen season.
This can be a twofold problem involving both your contact lenses and your eyes. Lenses may collect irritants, which then irritate your eyes. Keeping your lenses clean can help, which means possibly changing your contact lens solutions or switching to daily disposable contact lenses.
Your doctor may be able to relieve the itching associated with allergies that can lead to problems like eye twitching with either over-the-counter or prescription eye drops.
