    When the eyelids are closed, it forms a barrier in the back of the eyelids, what is the barrier in the back of the eyelids called?

    Is it the conjunctival barrier, that the skin that they see in the back of the eyelids when the eyelids are closed.

    Google is struggling to find that, I suspect that that is a description/function, rather than an actual name of an anatomical part of the eye. A bit like a sea-wall (or sand-bags, or the Thames Barrier) could be called a flood barrier/defence. Maybe?

    Welcome Rebel2004. I'm really curious as to why you would choose an audio and music forum to ask such a question as your first post?

    The sceptic in me says this is a fake account, there's no way an 18 yr old female would join a hifi forum.

    If valid, an interesting route to answering college/uni homework or getting the post count up :)

    This isn't a fake account.

    Why not? Is an interest in music the sole preserve of old men?

    on this forum, yes.

    Young people don't blather on about releases, masters or which engineer did what, how much they love Naim, which cable is bright or which sticky pads sound the best. They listen to music.

    PS I said "hifi forum" not music forum

    PPS I think it's the palpebral conjunctiva

    How does that justify calling a lone, young, female a “fake”?

    It is the palpebral conjunctiva, its the skin that many people ''see'' inside the eyelids when the eyelids are closed.

    I only see sunlit uplands and visions of utopia when I close my eyes!

    Thanks for showing me the picture, the conjunctiva is the skin that a lot of people see in the back of the eyelid when they close their eyelids.

    Well, things have progressed as far as my fist post on this thread - the link in post #3.

    How do you know she is lone, young or female.

    Frankly I find your default view that a female is automatically 'lone' quite misogynistic
