Moving one eye at a time can create a superhuman controlling effect, but with a little effort and time you can master this technique. Warm up your facial muscles so that you have a chance to do this maneuver. Also, it is crucial that you squint your eyes to get this trick right.


Part 1 of 3: warming up

Only Move One Eye Step 1

Step 1. Warm up your face

By doing this, you are preparing your facial muscles for action. Some of these muscles coordinate the movement of the eyes, so warming them up will make you more likely to move one eye. To warm up, proceed as follows:

  • Lightly massage the entire face with your hands and rub it in a circular motion. Pay attention to the contours of the eyes;
  • open your mouth wide to yawn. Open your eyes and mouth, raise your eyebrows as high as possible. Then contract them all together.

Step 2. Warm your eyes

Now that your facial muscles are warmed up, you can do the same with your eyes. Rotate your eyes in their sockets several times. Keep your head straight, hold your neck in place, and try looking left, then right. Then, while keeping your face and neck in the same position, look down and up.

Squinting is another great way to warm up your eyes. This helps train one eye to move all at once. If you still can't complete this round, the tips in the next step will help you get there

Step 3. Learn to squint if necessary

Some of you may have squinted as you warm your eyes, but don't worry if you haven't mastered this technique yet. With a little practice, you will become an expert.

  • Practice squinting by looking at the tip of your nose with both eyes. Gently move the gaze over your nose as you gaze inward.
  • Hold a pen at arm's length directly between your eyes. Attach the pen and move it closer to your face up to 5-10 cm. At this distance, your eyes should meet.
  • These techniques can involve muscles that cannot take more pressure, which can lead to fatigue. When you're exhausted, take a break and try again. It may take you a little while, but eventually you will!

Step 4. Check the position of your eyes in front of a mirror

Squint in front of a mirror to see if you've mastered the technique. How do your eyes look? When in doubt, seek the advice of a loved one or a friend.

  • If you don't have a mirror or there is no one who can verify this, take a selfie.
  • Being able to squint can make it easier to learn to move one eye at once.

Part 2 of 3: move one eye in a crossed position

Step 1. Try to look to the right or to the left

Whichever direction you choose, hold this position for a few minutes.

Step 2. Squint with the eye that is facing outward

If you are looking to the right you should move your right eye and if you are looking to the left you should also move your left eye. While holding your eye still, which is facing inward, move the other eye until it squints.

Give your moving eye a direction to follow. Place a finger at your arm's height on one side and in front of your outward facing eye. Fix that finger with that eye. Then move your finger towards the center of your nose while following it with the eye that is facing outward

Step 3. Return to your original position

Reverse the movement so that the eye you have moved returns to its starting position. If, for example, you started looking to the left, you should come back to that position.

Practice with one eye several times to gain mastery before switching to the other eye

Step 4. Practice with the second eye

You now know the method. Since you know how this trick works, you can try it out with the second eye without using your finger. If you have trouble doing this, feel free to use your finger.

Step 1. Squint your eyes

Now is the time for you to put everything you have learned into practice. Squint your eyes using your finger or a pen if you need to. Once done, hold this position for a few seconds.

Take regular breaks to avoid tiring yourself

Step 2. Look away with your finger

Keep your eyes crossed and hold your index finger in front of the eye on the same side. For example, your right index finger should be in front of your right eye. Without moving the other eye, focus on the finger with the eye in front of it. Gently move your finger to the other side while following it with the same eye.

Positioning your finger so that only the eye on the same side can see it may help. Start placing your finger a little to the side

Step 3. Return the eye to the crossed position and resume

Return the eye to the starting position. Reverse the eye movement by returning the eye on the same side to its original crossed position.

To stop this movement, you should repeat it several times with one eye before switching to the other

Step 4. Practice mastering this technique

The more you practice, the easier it will be for you to do. Test with each eye. Switch from one eye to the other and vice versa. Try to move your eyes independently without attraction. If you find it difficult at first to do it without an attraction, imagine that it is present.
