Owls Don’t Have Eyeballs.

Instead of eyeballs, owls have something closer to eye tubes. They are elongated and held in place by bony structures called sclerotic rings. Owls can’t move or roll their eyes within their sockets (instead, they must turn their whole heads to look in a new direction), but they do have excellent night vision and far-sightedness. Notably, they also have binocular vision, just like humans do.
