Eyeballs contain two types of liquid - the Aqueous humor and the Vitreous humor, both of which are comprised of mostly water- which as we all know freezes and turns into ice. If you had a set of eyeballs, detached from the human or animal body (for example cow eyeballs used for dissection purposes) they would freeze at 32 degrees F or 0 degrees Celsius- or perhaps a few degrees below due to the tissues surrounding the eye. Eyeballs attached to a living human/animal will not freeze unless the entire body is lethally frostbitten-

When the eye is attached to the human body there is a constant supply of warm blood circulating throughout the eye, regardless of the temperature outside. There is also a massive amount of muscle and tissue surrounding the socket to keep the eye warm. So unless the actual body is dying from cold, your eyes will be fine.

Err - what is "up your eyeballs"

YES 1.because the cold connects to your eye.2.because WHY NOT.answ3. Yes, in the Antarctic, and no doubt in a really cold chiller, the surface of your eyeballs could freeze. A blast of very cold air could freeze the wet surface of your eyeball. It would be very difficult to imagine the whole of the eyeball freezing, for the part of the eye that we see, is only a small bump on the surface of your eye.But before the surface froze, your eyelashes stick together, and this provides a good warning sign. It would be difficult to ignore this.
