What happens if a mosquito bites your eye?
I've always wanted to know because i've gotten bites from when i'm asleep around my eyes (cheeks forehead) but what would happen if it were my eyes?
*Could someone be partially blind? (probably in a certain spot of the eye??)
*Could someone die? because it's the eye.
*If stung through the lid does the mosquitos get the blood from the eye or eyelid?
Feel free to answer some or all of the questions.

We have become blind!!!!!

Ouch! I suppose that there would be a lot of painful swelling, but I think the eye would heal for the most part. It would be extremely hard for a mosquito to bite that area though, even if it got past the lid, you would blink before it could bite you, the mosquito would be forced off or be crushed.

A mosquito will not have the chance to bite you in the eye due to the natural protection system of the eye like the eye led that will automatically close when a foreign object touches it, also the saline liquid (same of the tears liquid) that is in the eye it will kill the insect if succeeded to pass the eye led. So don't be afraind, That will never happen

moquitoes will never bite your eyeballs. maybe your eyelids... but that is a very minimal possibility. Mosquitoes do not aim those areas.

The bites u have got, u may need to check your sleeping environment, like your pillow (had it been sunned, or is it clean) and whether there may be dust mites or u may have some allergies that causes those blotchiness and itchiness.

May I suggest u to visit your medical physician for a concrete answer.

First, remember that a mosquito doesn't actually "sting," but only bites. The venom she injects (and only females bite) is to keep the blood flowing (the venom is an anticoagulant), and she doesn't ingest it - she uses it to incubate her eggs. You have to think about this logically. Would they be partially blind? No - the parts of our eye that are actually involved in seeing are far from the front of the eye, and well away from the depth the mosquito could reach. Even an injury to the cornea doesn't mean that a person will be blind. Could someone die? Probably not - they would have to be INTENSELY allergic to the venom, and they would probably already know that. I'm allergic, but it would take far more than one bite to cause a severe-enough reaction to kill me. If bitten through the eyelid, it's *remotely* possible that the blood could come from the eye itself, but it's unlikely. The proboscis of the mosquito just isn't long enough to go through the eyelid and into the eye, as a rule.

If you're getting bites when you sleep, it's time to find some mosquito netting for nighttime use. They do carry diseases, no to mention the fact that they're just plain ITCHY and it's no fun to be bitten! I have mosquito netting that I got at an army surplus store that I use for camping; there is also netting that will drape over your bed (usually hung from the ceiling or a frame over the bed) to allow you to sleep mosquito-free :-)

You do not really have enough blood in your eyeball for a mosquito to even want to go there.
