5. How does this reflex protect our eyes?
1.You can not feel when they dilate because it happens in a split second and that is one thing that you can not feel. For example in the test you could not feel it.2. You do not have any control because they just close to protect your eyes so that they do not get hurt.
3.A reflex happens without use doing it is called the use of the involuntary muscles.
4.Our eyes get bigger in the dark so that you can see better and that they can absorb all the light they they can get. They get smaller in bright lights then because they get enough light as it is in that light.
