EYE-ROLL SIGN

is often used to indicate an individual's susceptibility to hypnosis. Patients roll their eyes upwards and the greater the sclera shown (the white part of the eye), the greater their susceptibility.

EYE-ROLL SIGN: "Individuals to claim to practice hypnosis, may conduct an eye roll test to determine the patients susceptibility to hypnosis before commencing treatment."
