A number of recent studies have reported high spontaneous eyeblink rate (SEBR) values in apparently normal subjects, but the reasons for this are unclear. An assessment was made of SEBR, in 60 educated adult male subjects aged between 22 and 40 years, over a period of 5 min in silence. Half of the subjects were classified as having frequent eyeblink activity. All subjects also had their corneal and conjunctival touch (tactile) sensitivity assessed with a Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometer immediately after the video recording of SEBR.
