    What would happen?

    This has been bugging me all day, and the girlfriend didn't know much about it..

    If you had a hole in your eyelid, would you ever be able to get to sleep?

    Anyways, wouldn't bother Mat that's all I can tell you.

    Some people can sleep with their eyes open, so i reckon they could.

    But then fish don't have eyelids, reckon fish sleep?

    I don't think it's the darkness that matters, it's more the fact that your eyelids have to be closed.

    Yeah, I think it's a matter of relaxing all the muscles in your body as much as possible so your brain can switch off, so theoretically if you had a hole in your eyelid that shouldn't make too much difference, as long as the muscles that work your eyelid aren't used to keep your eye open, and as long as it's dark so your brain isn't getting any visual stimuli.

    I'm pretty sure the bigger issue would be the fact that they have to be moist (hence blinking), so you'd have to be able to blink automatically in your sleep. So you're either born with it, or it's Maybelline.

    We're all adressing the wrong issue here. Firstly, I want to know how you get a hole in your eyelid.

    Yeah, I dare say the more pressing question would not be "how am I going to sleep", but "why did I wake up with a hole in my eyelid".

    I reckon the easiest way would be to use that electric drill that was in the D+T department which was purely there so you could drill through metal rulers.

    When I was a baby, I used to sleep with my eyes open, so I'd say yes.
