Today's Winr.er ll: DANIEL WALLS, 7 Woodbury, Conn. Why do we blink our eyes? The lids of our eyes, which move up and down when we blink, are one of the most important ways we have for protecting our eyes. The lids are made up of folds of skin and plates of fibrous tissue. They are raised and lowered by means of muscles. On the average, we blink automatically about every six seconds -- or about a quarter of a billion times during our lifetime! This automatic blinking does two things for our-eyes: it lubricates them and irrigates them. The lubrication is dons by sebaceous glands. There are about 20 to 30 of these tiny glands along the edge of each lid. Every time we blink, a secretion from these glands is squeezed out. The secretion of the sebaceous glands lubricates the edge of the eyelid and the lashes. Otherwise they would become dry and brittle. Each of our eyes also has a tear gland and ducts. Ths ducts carry tears from the tear gland to the upper eyelid. Each time we blink, the eyelid exerts suction on the opening of the tear ducts. Some fluid .is taken out of the tear gland. This irrigates the cornea of the eye and prevents' it from drying out. So if we can say we are "crying" every lime tears appear, we are really crying all clay long -- every time we blink! And the reason why we sometimes laugh with tears in our eyes is that the act of laughing can make certain muscles squeeze the tear glands and thus produce tears. * at * Win a New Book of Knowledge Yearbook for Writing-About "MY FAVORITE PERSON IN TOWN" Of all the people in your town, whom do you like or admire most?
