Ok good thing.Then try sneezing without closing your eye's and if you succeed just let me know ok.I don't think you can really succeed on this as this is virtually impossible and also dangerous topractice i have heard.So, better not to try as doctors advice not to hold back sneeze as it is very dangerous to health.So, closing eye's may lead to hold back your sneeze..so, better not to try... Anyway's Thanks for responding

Well I'm gonna go out on a limb here, but maybe because otherwise ones eyes would pop out of their sockets?
