child's excessive blinking, TICS?

My 9 yr old daughter started blinking excessively about a month ago and it seems to be getting worse. We took her to an optometrist but nothing wrong with her eyes except a slight bad vision which requires glasses for her classroom. Can this be considered TICS and will it go away with time?

Re: child's excessive blinking, TICS?

Many kids will blink excessively when they need glasses. Has the blinking improved since she got glasses? Maybe she needs them at home too for distant vision.

No, glasses haven't helped yet.

Honestly, I would just watch her. It usually takes more then one symptom to diagnose tics/ Tourette's (this is only my opinion). Many children will develop habits, like eye blinking, when doing heavy thinking or maybe nervous (kind of like nail chewing)
