you blink as per normal, try a few moments of standing practice before you start, and try not to stare and let go of staring. relax and blink.

(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
