Kim Goodman is a woman who can protrude her eyes 12 millimeters (0.47 inches) from their sockets. She holds the world record for the farthest eyeball protrusion. She currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
When she was struck in the head, she discovered her eyeball popping ability. Her eyeballs popped out even more than normal, and she'd been able to do so on command ever since.
Her eyeballs popped out much further than usual and ever since that day she could pop them out on cue, as well as when she yawns.
Guinness World Records placed Goodman in their top ten "feats" of all time list for their 50th anniversary in 2004.
Her eyes were measured in Istanbul, Turkey, on 2 November 2007.
Measuring the "pop" is an exact science that requires the use of a proptometer by an optometrist; the actual, eye-watering result is based on an average of three measurements.
“Proptosis” is the term for eyeball displacement or bulging eyes. Kim discovered her talent when she was hit on the head by a hockey mask, but can now pop out her eyes on cue.
