Not to Be Sneezed AtResearchers at Cambridge University in the UK have discovered that blinking when sneezing is a subconscious reaction given by your brain in order to prevent bacteria and debris from making contact with your eyes when sneezing.

Our contributors share their experiences:

  • Yes, it's perfectly physically possible. To all of you who say "Your eyes would pop out," let's try thinking about things before we say them, shall we? What do you think your eye sockets are for? The orbital bones? They're there to keep your eyes in. Your eyes will NOT pop out of your head. If your hard bones can't keep your eyes from popping out, what makes you think eyelids would be able to? If you would like evidence to back all this up, the myth busters did an episode all about this.
  • As a matter of fact, I tried it several times. I once got it, but I was never able to do it again.
  • No. It's a defensive measure. It kinda keeps your eyes in your head. Otherwise they would pop out!!
  • Yes, it's possible; I used to do it all the time when I was little. For others it might be harder, or they may not be able to do it. But for some it is quite easy. (I know I can.)
  • Yes, it is possible and has happened with many people. Although most cannot, there are some who are able to sneeze with their eyes open (see link below).
  • No. Actually, it can cause car crashes when a person's sight is gone for just a couple of seconds.
  • It is completely impossible to do so unless you are an alien.
  • Yes, if you are Chuck Norris.
  • No. If you try to, you will epicly fail.
  • One thing I tried is this: When I feel a sneeze coming on, I close my eyes; then, when I sneeze, I open them. It actually worked very well, and just to confirm it, I retested it - and every time I sneeze, it works.
  • yes every thing is possible i done this once without even trying but now i cant do it even if i do try

No, it is very possible to sneeze with your eyes open

No, I read somewhere that it is not possible to sneeze with your eyes open. :)

Yes. It is not possible to sneeze with your eyes OPEN though.

It is not impossible to open them when you sneeze. But if you force your eyes open during a sneeze it could pop them out of socket. The cause of this is that, when you sneeze you have air coming out of you at a speed of 90 mph, so it has the power to pop you eyes out of socket.

Its a biologically proven fact that you cant sneeze with your eyes open.

id say life because its possible to sneeze with your eyes open

Yes it is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.

reading your question precisely, if you sneeze, Ican keep my eyes open no problem. My friend told me if you sneeze with your eyes open they pop out

yes i have done it before but you have try

yes, that is just a common misbelief.

No way! That's just creepy if that was true! And it is impossible to sneeze with your eye open. So it is a myth to sneeze with your eyes open AND to have your eyes pop straight out of you when you sneeze with you eyes open. ________ they wont you eye lids are for spreading water around your eyes so you eyes don't dry out and if you do sneeze with your eye open your eye sockets will keep it in even if you sneeze with your eye closed

no. you cannot sneeze with your eyes open cos if you do, your eyes burst into blood and then you die.

No it's not possible to the average person, but if you're daring to you can hold your eyes open but it is very hard.It would not be a good idea though. Trying to sneeze with your eyes open can break your rib cage or hurt a blood vessel. This also happens if you try to not sneeze.

you close ur eyes because its partly impossible to sneeze with ur eyes open

You cannot sneeze with your eyes open.

Yes, in fact, it is almost impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.

The only way you can sneeze is with your eyes closed.

Ever since i was little i could sneeze with my eyes open. It became a habit for me, but for others they concentrate or look at something and sneeze.

this is under the assumption that kids sneeze the same way as adults: your eyes close when you sneeze to keep bacteria from getting in them. some people can sneeze while their eyes are open, but most can't. answering your question, their might be some kids out there who can, but most probably cannot sneeze with their eyes open.

Nothing happens. It's just a natural thing. Some people sneeze with their eyes open

No you cant! I've tried many many times, but it came out sounding like a cough, but it was a SNEEZE! It is really weird! You can try it!

No you do not see anything when you sneeze, we close our eyes, otherwise our eyeballs may pop out.

They would pop out of their sockets because of the pressure, which is why the body intelligently designed itself to have the reflexive action of closing the eyes when you sneeze. It is impossible to hold them open.

Sneezing is a reflex. A reflex is where your body does something automatically and is something that you have no control over. Some people can sneeze with their eyes open, and some people can not.

It's never been proved because closing your eyes is the natural reflex. However, there's an urban legend stating that if you sneeze with your eyes open, your eyes will be forced out of your head by the extreme force and speed of the sneeze (supposedly over a hundred miles an hour). Don't try this at home! Actually nothing happens when you sneeze with your eyes open. The spray is going outward when you sneeze and won't land on your face or eyes if you try holding your eyes open as you sneeze. Besides, this was tested on Mythbusters of the Discovery Channel when Adam Savage attempted to sneeze with his eyes open: his eyeballs didn't pop out of his head like the urban myth implied. The only thing that happened, especially when viewed on high-speed, was that he looked hilariously foolish sneezing with his eyes open!
