You Know What I Just Realized?

Okay, I was watching the X-movies again this weekend and I realized something. I've been reading comics for 20+ years now, and I just grokked something. You know how Storm's eyes always go white when she uses her powers? I just realized why that is....

She can summon hurricane force winds, right? So there's going to be tuns of grit, sand, dust, and even high velocity water molecules being blown around, all anxious to scratch up her delicate corneas, right? Those white eye things... I just realized they're some kind of nictating membrane to protect her eyes when she uses her powers.
