So can you sneeze without closing your eyes? Some people are aware, and some are blissfully unaware until the sneeze comes and the force of the sneeze causes you to shut your eyes. There's the rumor that we close our eyes when we sneeze as a reflex because the pressure can cause our eyes to shoot out of our skulls. I know, I know, it is silly, but a great many people think it. So can you sneeze with your eyes open?
D News put together this video explaining why you can, indeed, sneeze without blowing out your eyeballs. Most of us knew this anyway, but it is nice to know the science behind things sometimes. Keep in mind, if you would rather not watch it and go on believing we can shoot our eyeballs out of our skulls with a strong enough sneeze, that's fine. No respect lost here. Some just dare to dream bigger than others. We cannot fault you for that.
