i think it has to do with the amount of air-pressure that blasts through the head. i don't usually think it's enough to pop the eyes out, but it doesn't sound like a fun experiment either :).
One for Mythbusters to try, maybe?
if you do, your eyeballs explode cos of the negative pressure build up
got a headache
still ended up closing my eyes

I don't recommend plugging your nose when you sneeze either - that's not fun
Why do So many people do that!?! I see people do it and I justshake my head.
I know a lot of people hate sneezing but I actually think it feels good.
You really should consider writing disclaimers on some of this shit. People are dumb and eyeballs will be lost.
Be it on your head, randomposting.
Is that really what happens!?
that information was not provided to me where I got this fact..
I try to do this when I'm driving... Overall, I think it makes the whole thing worse and I'm probably more likely to crash if I attempt to keep my eyes open.
Damn spring and pollen.
Urgh. Yeah. Just letcha self sneeze. Either do that, or use some peppermint extractunder your nose. Should clear it up.
Hmm, sounds like a job for the Mythbusters.
The best thing about this post is all the responses that say
I was actually trying that this morning. Its true.
I only speak the troof. ;)
why? do your eyes pop out or something?
No. Nothing happens. It's just a common myth that you can't - it is, however, very, very hard (though certainly not unheard-of.) The reason that your eyes close reflexively is because the nerves serving the eyes and the nose are closely intertwined (that's also how you get photic sneezes - when you sneeze in bright sunlight.) It gives the impression that your eyes are closing to protect themselves from something, but they're not.
I wonder what would happen like if you super-glued your eyelids open or something of the sort...Would your eyelids rip? Ick...painful thoughts...
I don't reccomend trying, love!
I tried it. Now I'm blind. Thanks a lot...
