Which eyes can absorb pressure?
A new study has found that the eyelids can be able to absorb a considerable amount of pressure, even when there’s a barrier protecting the eyes.
The study was published in the journal Science Advances.
It shows that the inner ear is able to respond to high-pressure noise.
The researchers found that this type of sound has no effect on the eyes, but can cause them to swell up and dilate, making it difficult to see.
When the researchers tested the effects of the high-speed sound on their subjects, they found that even when the eyelid was completely covered, they could hear the sound, albeit slightly.
The sound was still able to affect the eyelashes.
“This is a pretty powerful effect,” said study author Dr. Daniel M. Dennett, an otolaryngologist at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
“There’s a clear difference between hearing an ear-breathing sound and hearing a high-pitched, piercing sound,” he told ABC News.
The researchers also noted that they were able to measure the level of pressure in the eyeliner, which is usually a relatively low marker of how much pressure is present.
“It’s really important to note that we’re still not really able to tell which eyelid is doing the most work with this effect, but it’s definitely something we’d like to see investigated in a more detailed way.”
Dr. Denton said that he hopes the findings will lead to new research in this area.
“What we need to understand is how does this effect work, how does it cause the eyelash to swell, and how do we get a measure of that?” he said.
