"Blinking also helps the oily meibum and water tears mix together to form an emulsion called tear film. If you go for too long without blinking, the emulsion falls apart - oil and water don't like to mix - and your cornea could become exposed to air. At best that's uncomfortable - at worst, the chronic deterioration of the tear film could lead to a condition known as "dry eye" or, more technically, keratoconjunctivitis sicca."

"Normally, you blink debris away during the day - and the older you are, the more you fight eye junk. Adults blink at a rate of about 20 per minute; babies only do it about twice per minute."

The Structure and Assembly of Secreted Mucins
http://www.jbc.org/content/274/45/31751.full
"Mucins are major glycoprotein components of the mucous that coats the surfaces of cells lining the respiratory, digestive, and urogenital tracts, and in some amphibia, the skin. They function to protect epithelial cells from infection, dehydration, and physical or chemical injury, as well as to aid the passage of materials through a tract."
