These sheets include identifying parts of the eye, trivia about the eyes, and a healthy eye checklist. You can try these fun, educational activities and then quiz your partner and even your kids!

Crossing your eyes

Submitted by cchellman on Sat, 04/04/2020 - 11:02

Many of you have probably heard not to cross your eyes or they will stay that way. However is this true? In short, the answer is no. The reason why crossing your eyes for long periods of time won’t affect how your eyes look afterward, is because our eye muscles are meant to move in all directions. Thus crossing your eyes won’t force them to stay that way as the muscles in your eyes will retract back to their normal state.
