Good afternoon. When I blink my right eye, I sometimes hear a crunching noise. What can it be related to?

As a rule, in most cases "crunch" is caused by air getting between the eyeball and the eyelid and escaping when you blink. The sound is heard intermittently.

In elderly people, this kind of complaint may be caused by salt deposits or clogged and swollen glands on the mucosa of the eyelid from the inside. The surface ceases to be smooth, and blinking may produce sounds similar to "crunch".

In order to clarify the exact cause and exclude diseases, it is recommended to undergo a face-to-face examination by an ophthalmologist.

Health, eyes
