Hi there Naked Scientists, I've got a question for you. Is it possible for humans to sleep with their eyes open? Why?

Thanks lots!

What do you think?

See a similar topic here.

That link is not really answering the question.
Possibly because of something due to the eye muscle?

Yes. My wife does it all the time. Most annoying.

Thanks!
