Is blinking during sleep normal ?

Hi I am bindu with 26yrs of age. Actually i came to know that i am blinking my eyes while i am asleep. People are thinking that i am awake but only i know that i am sleeping. Does it happens? Do i have any problem? One year back i got some sweelings in my eyelid( Reason is not found) and one day may be that swelling got ruptured and my right eye started bleeding for some time only for once. Doctors told me that there is no serious problem only i have siviere dry eyes .

Hi Bindu!

Dear Bindu
Nothing to worry on account of eye movement. It can be due to slight vat imbalance and should become normal with herbs that cure vat e.g. garlic amongst medicines we prescribe vrihat vat chintamani ras one tab. od. Regarding dryness or Xerophthalmia it is better to consult eye specialist in Ayurveda we recommend dropping of rose water in eyes.
