    Well, for me, I HAVE to blink a lot or else my eyes get insanely red, burning etc... no doubt my MGD has a lot to do with that...

    I'm assuming you blink a lot because your eyes are dry, and if you don't blink enough, your eyes get more irritated... if so, then I don't see any good reason to attempt to "break the cycle" of blinking a lot.
    Yet another post-Lasik (2005)...
    Anyone have a time machine so I can go back and undo this mess?

      My consultant tells me to `blink more' for the same reason SAAG has given.

      When I'm in a lot of discomfort, I tend to close my eyes really tight for a few seconds but this isn't the same as blinking.
