That will be the best way to det. The cause. ...Read more

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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

The eye color does not actually change. ...Read more
Depends: Pain with blinking usually means there is a disturbance on your cornea. This could be from relatively simple conditions such as dry eye or blepharitis (eyelash inflammation), or more serious conditions.
