When the dentist is working on your teeth do you keep your eyes open or closed??

I was at the dentist today (with my eyes closed) and was wondering what the norm was? If I was being weird or if it's normal? I personally don't want to see anything he's doing or any of the tools he's using!!

  • Open, but I stare at the ceiling, count ripples in the task light, look at the garden outside his office. i don't look at the tools much, especially if they're made by Dremel.

  • Closed. Otherwise I get too anxious. I don't want to see the tools and I don't want to see the reflection of my mouth in his glasses...shudder.
