A technique for bypassing the eyelids permits equivalent visual stimulation of the retina before, during, or after a blink. Sensitivity to these stimuli decreases during voluntary blinks. This indicates that the source of the deficit is neural rather than optical. Such a visual loss may help to explain the common experience that most blinks go unnoticed.
