You may not know that you shed natural tears every day of your life. These protect the eyes and give them moisture that is necessary for clear and comfortable vision. Some people are unable to produce enough of these everyday tears, leaving the eyes dry and easily irritated. In this condition, blinking does not leave a moist “tear film” to wash and soothe the eye. In rare cases, dry eye can become serious—even blinding— without proper care and treatment.
People say “in the blink of an eye” because it’s the fastest muscle in the body. A blink usually lasts 100 to 150 milliseconds and it’s possible to blink five times in a second. Blinking happens to be an enormously important eye function. It helps remove any debris on your eye’s surface by spreading tears over them. The tears help moisten and lubricate the eyes and they also have important anti-bacterial properties.
