How many times do you blink your eyes in a day?

How many times do you blink your eyes in a day?

Every 10-15 seconds: The average person blinks roughly once every 10 seconds. This is a reflex that we can control to a degree (we can stare and decrease the blink rate for a minute or so, or blink rapidly on demand). The tears that lubricate our eyes normally evaporate after 10-15 seconds; blinking "pushes" new tears onto the eye's surface before all the previous tears have evaporated. ...Read more

How many times should a teenager blink in a minute?

How many times should a teenager blink in a minute?

Varies: The human blink rate is affected by such factors as age, environment, and activity. Teenagers are often engaged in such activities as reading or computer work, which will reduce the blink rate from the average 10 times per minute to 3-4 times per minute. This is one of the reasons teenagers tend to develop eye fatigue and fluctuations in vision. See your local eye physician if symptoms occur. ...Read more

If I look at a clock and blink a few times, the numbers look like they actually jump with my blinks, a lot, unless I deliberately focus and blink slow?

If I look at a clock and blink a few times, the numbers look like they actually jump with my blinks, a lot, unless I deliberately focus and blink slow?

Normal: When you blink, your eyeballs actually rotate upward (in most people with an intact Bell's phenomenon) so as to protect the cornea. As you blink very fast, as in fluttering your eyelids, it's very possible that an l.e.d light source would appear to be moving up & down. In normal situations, you would not usually pay attention to this subtlety. When blinking slowly, eyes already back in normal posi ...Read more

Sine last december, I sometimes see on and off black small floating dots in my vision. They go away after I blink a few times. What causes this?

Sine last december, I sometimes see on and off black small floating dots in my vision. They go away after I blink a few times. What causes this?

Floaters float!: Floaters are tiny clumps of gel or cells floating inside the vitreous, casting shadows on the retina. They are more visible when you look at the sky or a bright, evenly lit surface, and may look like little dots, circles, lines, clouds or cobwebs. You have always had some floaters since birth, even if you were not aware of them. New floaters come from tiny bits of retinal tissue. ...Read more

My tear production report is quite ok but at times I need to blink so frequently with an intense desire to pour water in eyes.

My tear production report is quite ok but at times I need to blink so frequently with an intense desire to pour water in eyes.

Allergies or pollution: If your tear production is adequate, and you're having these symptoms, it sounds like a reaction to inflammation occurring on the surface of the eye. Most common things include allergies and /or pollutants. Allergy drops will work for your allergies. Pollutants are a little bit more difficult. Some allergy drops will help with the symptoms, and artificial tears can help wash away some of the noxious stimuli. ...Read more

My three months old baby sometimes blinks with one eye five times in a row. It has been a week, do she have tics? I also squeeze my eyes a lot.

Too young for tics: Tics do not start at 3 months, usually not until 4-5 years old. I need more information to say what this is from but it may be an irritation of the eye or asymmetric face strength. Bring your baby to the doctor for an opinion. ...Read more

A small bump formed in my eyelid after a stye went away a week ago what can it be? I have a small flat bump in my top left eyelid. Its not very visible but I can feel it with my finger and at times when I blink. It immediatly followed the stye I had got r

Probably stye: Styes are accumulation of greasy oily material in the eyelids that occur when the eyelid oil glands become plugged up. Why this happens is unknown, but it is a fairly common problem. If the stye is small it will usually respond to application of warm compresses. If it becomes enlarged and swollen then it may require surgical drainage. An eye examination would be prudent. ...Read more

Uveitis: If the light is bothering the child and he is blinking and squinting his eyes, one may need to rule out uveitis- inflammation of the uveal tissue (especially iritis). Check with the ophthalmologist to make sure that child does not have some kind of inflammation of the eyes. Also if he has abraison of the cornea that can also make tearing, redness and photophobia. ...Read more

At times I cant move my body but my eyes blink rapidly. I feel nothing. After I get light headed and sleepy. What is wrong with me? Is it a seizure?

At times I cant move my body but my eyes blink rapidly. I feel nothing. After I get light headed and sleepy. What is wrong with me? Is it a seizure?

Possibly: These symptoms are quite possibly due to a seizure. Some seizure types, like partial seizures and absence seizures, do not cause convulsions like you see in movies. While it may not seem like a big deal, it's probably a good idea to see a neurologist to be evaluated and monitored. ...Read more
