How to Move a Single Eye: 12 Steps (with Pictures)

Moving just one eye at a time can give people the illusion that you have superhuman abilities - but with a little patience and dedication, anyone can learn this trick. Start by warming up your facial muscles for better results and try crossing your eyes to train.


Part 1 of 3: Warming up your muscles

Only Move One Eye Step 1

Step 1. Warm up your face muscles to prepare for the trick

Some of them coordinate eye movements; thus, by warming them up, you'll have more chances of getting the feat done. Do the following:

  • Massage the entire face lightly with your hands, making small circles and giving more focus to the area around the eyes.
  • Yawn hard. Open your eyes and mouth and raise your eyebrows as high as possible. Then contract all the muscles in the area.

Step 2. Warm up your eyes after warming up your facial muscles

Rotate them in orbit a few times. Immobilize the neck and start looking straight ahead. Then look left, right, up and down.

This exercise is also excellent for training the eye trick. If necessary, follow the tips in the following section

Step 3. If necessary, learn to cross your eyes

You may have already done this when warming up, but don't worry if this is your first time. Just train a little to master the process.

  • To practice the exercise, look at the tip of your nose with both eyes. Then slowly shift your gaze to the bridge of your nose, still looking at the area.
  • Hold a pen between your eyes with your arms outstretched. Focus your gaze on her and bring her closer to your face until she is 5-10 cm away. Your eyes will meet at this distance.
  • You may have to move some muscles that you exercise little to train this movement, which is tiring. Take a break when you get tired and be patient to get there!

Step 4. See your progress in front of the mirror

Cross your eyes in front of the mirror and see if you've mastered the technique. How are you? If you have any questions, ask a friend or relative for their opinion.

  • If you don't have access to a mirror or someone else who can help, take a selfie.
  • It will be easier to move just one eye if you can cross your eyes.

Part 2 of 3: Mocking just one eye to do the crusader trick

Step 1. Look hard left or right

Whichever direction, roll your eyes at her for a few seconds.

Step 2. Turn the farthest eye closer to the nose

If you're looking to the right, move your right eye (and vice versa). While doing this, let the eye that is already "turned" to the nose immobile.

Use an object (or even a finger) to guide the moving eye. Focus on this item and bring it closer to the center of your nose

Step 3. Return to starting position

Reverse the movement to bring the eye back to the beginning. For example: if you started looking to the left, go back to that point from the hook trick.

Practice this movement with one eye a few times to understand what you have to do before switching

Step 4. Train the other eye

At this point, you already know what to do. Just repeat the process on the other eye without having to follow one of your fingers - unless it's very difficult.

Part 3 of 3: Moving a single eye in the cross position

Only Move One Eye Step 9

Step 1. Cross your eyes

It's time to put all the training into practice. To do this, cross your eyes and, if necessary, use a pen or finger to orient yourself. When you do, stay in this position for a few seconds.

Take frequent breaks so you don't get tired

Step 2. "Pull" one eye with your finger

Keep your eyes crossed. Then place a forefinger in front of the eye on the same side (right-right, left-left). Don't move the other side while training and go little by little.

It may be helpful if you place your finger in a position where it is only visible to the eye on your side

Step 3. Return to the starting position and repeat the process

Reverse the movement and return the eye on the same side to the original position of the crossing exercise.

You can repeat the exercise a few times with one eye before changing to get used to it

Step 4. Train the skill until you master it

The more you practice, the easier it gets. Start with one eye and then alternate with the other. Try to move them without using your finger or pencil. If it's difficult at first, imagine there's some object there.
