Mata anda gerak-gerak?? Boleh baca sini..

Assalamualaikum..

Pernah tak korang mengalami pergerakan otot2 sekitar mata yg tidak terkawal?? Kalau aku, bnda ni aku biasa sebut "mata gedik2".. Bahasa inggerisnya involuntary twitching of the eyelid.. Kalau ikut org tua-tua cakap, katanya kalau yg gedik2 tu mata kanan, ade bnda baik nak jadik takpon nak tgk org jauh, kalau mata kiri tu ada bnda xbaik ataupon nak menangis.. Itu hanya kata org tua-tua, sekadar tau boleh la, percaya tu lebih baik jangan oke.. No no no.. Kalau menurut yg aku baca, keadaan ni boleh timbul bila kita stress.. Tapi mekanisme terjadinya masih lagi belum jelas.. Eyelid twitches ni tak bahaya, dan tidak menjejaskan kesihatan, tapi bole jadi ianya berlansung sampai beberapa minggu atau bulan. Plus, sekiranya mengganggu aktiviti seharian, dan disertai kontraksi otot2 kat muka, kene la rujuk ke doktor..

Rasa nak tarik2 je mata camni kalau mata gedik2..
Common causes of eyelid twitching are:
  1. short-term stress
  2. eye strain, such as from lots of computer use or hours of small focused hand work (such as threading a needle over and over), and from straining the eyes when reading a book without proper light or magnification.
  3. squinting a lot, such as from the sun, reading or other things. (The muscles essentially tire out.)
  4. consuming too much caffeine
  5. exhaustion; lack of sleep
  6. anxiety or temporary panic fits and nervousness which can be easily relieved and recover naturally by rest and relaxation.
Types of eyelid spasms are:
Eyelid Twitch
This is the most common and minor form of eyelid spasms. The cause of minor eyelid twitching is most likely caused by some of the sources listed above. A slight spasm of the lower eyelid or even both eyelids is common and harmless. These generally can be treated like any other muscle spasm in the body: the muscles should be rested and relaxed.

Essential Blepharospasm
This is a more extreme form of eyelid spasms. Essential Blepharospasm is an involuntary condition that involves (generally) both eyes, where the eyelids, and sometimes the eyebrows, close involuntarily. In advanced cases the muscles of the mouth or neck might be affected. During spasm, one's vision may be temporarily impaired due to involuntary closing of the eyelid. While these spasms are rare, they can be quite challenging. Blepharospasm is caused by abnormal nerve impulses that produce muscle spasms. Blepharospasm behaves in the body similarly to familial tremor.


Hemifacial Spasm
Hemifacial spasm is also a more serious form of eyelid spasm. It is a condition that involves the eyelid muscles and the muscles around the mouth, but on only one side of the face. Hemifacial spasm is usually caused by an artery pressing on the nerve to the facial muscles causing the face to twitch.

Tiada terapi khusus untuk eyelid twitches ni, biasanya boleh sembuh dgn sendirinya. Antara lain yg bole dipertimbangkan ialah dgn melakukan penanganan stress yg baik, dan bilas mata dgn air..huhu Ada ophthalmologist yg menyarankan untuk mengurangkan intake kafein dan gula buatan (aspartame).. Oke. Agak terasa tang kafein tu. Heh~
