Superior oblique myokymia is a condition that causes rapid eye twitching. The superior oblique is a muscle that helps control the eye movements. Myokymia means involuntary muscle movement. The muscle surrounding the eye begins contracting leading to symptoms such as double vision or seeing a still object move up and down.
A small study of 37 subjects with superior oblique myokymia found that 100% of subjects had a history of migraine symptoms and auras.1 Another study of 44 subjects with superior oblique myokymia also reported that 100% of subjects had a history of migraine and visual auras.2
