  • My spouse can hear me blinking when we are in bed—is this normal?


    Question:

    My spouse can hear me blinking when we are in bed at night watching TV—is this normal to have loud blinking?


    Answer:

    Eyelid clicking with blinking or a squishy sound with eyelid rubbing is uncommon but benign. This may be due to tears or air that gets trapped under the eyelid is released with movement or pressure.
