Why can’t you move your eyes past a certain distance?


Try moving your eyes in one direction as far as you can. You can’t go much farther than seeing the direct edge of your eyesocket. How come your eyes can’t move more?

Your eyes moves thanks to muscle attached to the eyeball, so you can’t go further than the range of movement of those muscles. Also the optic nerve is located behind the eye, so it’s another limiting factor to eye movement.
