Yeah hamsters blink, usually they do it one eye at a time though. and it's very quick so you can barely notice it.

Hamsters do blink but not as often as humans do.

do they have two eyelids,  like cats?  cause cats blink by closing their inner eyelid which is clear and moves sideways so you cant really see it unless you know its there.
