Why does bright light or looking toward (no, not directly at) the sun cause you to sneeze?


Or, if you feel a sneeze coming on, and it feels "stuck," you can bring it on by looking at a light, or even just upwards toward the ceiling or sky. What gives, here?

    So does this explain why I can make myself sneeze by scratching my eyebrow? Is the trigeminal nerve in that area too?
