What is the function of the nictitating membrane?
The nictitating membrane is a third eye lid which moves horizontally over the eye. Its function is to protect the eye and clean the eyes. it is mostly functional in birds and reptiles. whereas it became a vestigial organ in most of the mammals. In fishes and amphibians also the nictitating membrane is present and here it reduces the friction with water. The nictitating membrane is a protective, semi-transparent third eyelid. It allows vision while giving the eye extra protection. In the case of frogs, the protection is needed when the frog is out of the water.
