Blinking is a natural activity in the human body. Whenever any dust particle or water drop tries to hit the eyes are our eyelashes move down and restrict the entry.
Our brain works as a CPU where our eyes transfer the image to our brain and the brain give the signal to the eyelashes to close the entrance.

This process happens in milliseconds.

The average human blink speed is a tenth of a second which is 100 milliseconds. Sometimes, depends on the situation it can reach up to 400 milliseconds.
