Proper eye development and alignment play important roles in your depth perception. They also prevent you from seeing double and having other eyesight errors. “Crossed eyes,” also known as strabismus, is a vision disorder that occurs when your eyes can’t look at the same point at the same time.
Your eyes’ baseball-like shape plays a central role in the even distribution of light rays. Any irregularities to its form and structure may compromise how light is bent and focused in your eyes, resulting in refractive errors, particularly astigmatism.
The transparent, dome-like structure covering the front part of your eyes is known as the cornea. Its main function is to accurately bend light rays toward your retina. Delicate and tiny protein fibers hold your cornea in place. When they weaken, your cornea may slowly thin and bulge out, resulting in a condition called keratoconus.
