Why can't you keep your eyes open when you sneeze?
It is possible, but not for most people, most of the time. The contractions of the facial muscles that accompany a sneeze include the muscles of the eyelids that control blinking.

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…
Yes, this is to keep the bacteria and other harmful components of the sputum out. This is a natural habit and no one can sneeze with their eyes open; it is impossible. One may squint though, instead of fully closing their eyes. Most commonly, they do squint rather than fully close the eyes. Yes, this is to keep out the bacteria and other harmful components of the sputum. It is a natural habit and it…
Never EVER try sneezing with eyes open,Why???Because ur eyes will fly out!sounds funny but u=its true they really do! I have tried to keep my eyes open while sneezing; my vision is still good, and my eyes suffered no ill effects at all. However, I did not succeed in sneezing with open eyes.
