If alien species like the supposed ET descriptions exist, then they probably live in a world where the environment does not interfere with their eyes,
like happens on Earth with fishes, who do not need lids because they live in water.
Or they may have a different type of eye, made of some material that does not require any liquid to keep them in a perfect working condition.
Or those things are not eyes, but the fact that they are on the same place as we expect to see eyes we consider them as something that they are
Or the description of those alleged aliens includes those big lidless eyes because that is something that we humans consider a clue to show that they
are not of our species or even from our environment. We look to the eyes of other people (apparently in the US there is a tendency to look at the
mouth, but that is a different story) to try to see in what mood they are, not only because the eyes reflect that (that is why they are called the
mirrors of the soul) but because almost all mammals have eyebrows that are used to complement their facial expressions, showing even better their
The lack of lids and eyebrows on the description of aliens may have been a result of trying to show without a doubt that those things were not from
our planet or it may be the result of what people were feeling at the time, a result of their feeling of being in the presence of something strange,
maybe dangerous, but that would not show their real intentions.
As you may have noticed from what I have said, I do not believe that the aliens that have been reported are real, they may be an invention of those
who supposedly saw them, they may be the result of the imagination of those who think they saw them, or they may be artificially made on purpose to
look like that.
Or I may be completely wrong, it has happened many times before.
