Pulsing Sensation In Eyes?

A lot of times when I go to bed and close my eyes I can sort of see a pulsating sensation in my eyes at the same beat of my heart. Is this normal? I have high blood pressure - does this cause this in any way?


The symptoms you are describing are probably related to myokymia, a benign spontaneous twitching usually of the lower eyelid. Possible precipitating factors are stress, fatigue, or too much caffeine. It is rarely a precursor of a more serious condition known as blepharospasm. Describe the situation to an ophthalmologist, who might be able to help.
