Humans have two eyes. But despite having binocular (two-eyed) vision, we see only one image. This is thanks to our brains working hard to make sense of the input coming through both eyes. Because human eyes are close together on the front of our heads, both eyes see more or less the same thing at the same time.

While searching for prey, the chameleon uses monocular vision, with each eye functioning independently of the other. The eye movements–or saccades–are referred to as 'uncoupled' when functioning this way.

The chameleon is among the most highly visually-oriented lizards, using this sense in prey capture, mating behavior, and predator avoidance. Unique features of chameleon vision include a negative lens, a positive cornea, and monocular focusing.
