excessive blinking
My son, 5 1/2 yrs., has started this excessive blinking problem.  He says his eyes "hurt"--but they are not red, irritated, glassy etc.  It is getting very alarming.  He blinks hard--3 or so times close together every few minutes or sometimes seconds.  I haven't taken him to the Dr. yet...truth is I hoped it was a short lived phase.  But, this has been going on for a month now.

I would take him to the doctor, he's old enough to know if something is hurting.  He may have a condition known as "dry eye."
