9 year old child been blinking eyes a lot and had a large soft mushy bowel movement in her sleep didn't wake up?

Correlation unlikely: Excessive blinking can be forceful, a tic like condition or non forceful due to weakness of the eye muscle resp. For elevating the upper eyelid. Loss of bowel control may not be related to the eye symptoms but both conditions require a very careful evaluation to rule out other underlying causes. I will recommend an evaluation by your PCP who will determine if a neuro consult is necessary ...Read more

Blinking eyes is this stress?

Blinking eyes is this stress?

Possibly stress: I answered a question recently re kids and blinking eyes.
Same info holds true for adults. People get into habits (nail-biting, nose-picking, blinking, other tics) as stress-relievers.
If the eye exam is normal, most often stress or exhaustion or habit is the cause. Rarely there can be central causes (blepharospam, etc) that require neurological evaluation, possibly imaging, sometimes botox.. ...Read more

Blinking eyes due to blast of air?

Eyes getting dry: A blast of air, be it from a fan or wind, causes your tears to evaporate quickly. To compensate, you blink more since blinking releases tears. The solution is to wear sunglasses when outdoors and avoid having a fan blowing on your face indoors. And you can use artificial tears 4 times a day if it becomes a constant problem. ...Read more

Eyes : what is the use of blinking eyes, is good for eyes to get rid of strain?

Lubrication: Blinking serves at least two functions: removing debris from the eye surface, and lubricating the eye. Eyelids act as "reverse windshield wipers" - they push tears onto the eye's surface in order to keep it moist and nourished. Blinking can clear up vision temporarily in those whose eyes have become dry (from excess staring at the computer, for example), but does not relieve strain. ...Read more

Analysis would include things such as does the child see well, are the eyes red, is there discharge or signs of infection, is there associated systemic illness of some sort? And is the condition getting better or worse? Good luck with your child's examination. ...Read more
