Well, 16 times a minute, so (oops, had to blink) 60 minutes in a hour, 24 hours in a day, 365 days a year. So that is around 8, 409, 600. I am 13 and so 8, 409, 600 times 13=109324800 is how many times I blinked in my life. That is crazy. :D But The average person blinks 6-8 million times a year. Gosh! That is nuts! Oh, and how many times a second? Once every 3.3 seconds. Goodness! That is nuts!

Yeah? You blink 24 hours a day? That's weird.
Assuming that a person blinks 600 times an hour for the 16 or so hours they're awake, that would be about 9600 blinks in a day.

People can blink well there sleeping. There's another, thin, layer that blinks. Try gently closing your eyes then try blinking.

It has been estimated that the average person blinks 16 times per minute. Thus, it can be calculated that people blink 960 times in one hour; 15,360 times in a 16-hour day (because we sleep, of course); 108,220 times in a week; 460,800 times in a 30-day month. The rate of blinking varies, but on average the eye blinks once every five person blinks 25 times in one minute.

Blinking is basically a rapid closing and opening of the eyelid. It is a very important function of the eye. Blinking helps in spreading tears across the eye. It also helps in removing irritants from cornea and conjunctiva.

The Blinking rate of a person is determined by Blinking center. A Person blinks once every two to ten seconds depending of his metabolism. On average a perdon blinks 10 times in a minute. That means he blinks 600 times in an hour and 14400 times in a day.
