when you faint, do your eyes close or do they remain open?

Hi I'm back your eyes do close,when you faint but you only black out for about a  minute then quickly recover.If she is staying out longer she needs to see a doctor,for her condition.There is something wrong.If you feel she is doing this for attenion she still needs help,talk with some one you can trust about this situation.If you care about your friend you will.I hope this information helps.TNT406.

Hi Lizzieshaw,
Sorry about the last posting. I pushed the wrong button.

I have worked in the medical field for 20 + years. I've seen people faint with eyes open as well as eyes shut. When I've seen people faking fainting, they usually have their eyes shut. That's my experience anyway.
Like the last person said, she ought be urged to go to her doctor. If it's psychological or for real, she should be checked. Good Luck,
Kelly
