  transform: rotate(45deg);


To add follow cursor functionality to these eyes, we have to use javascript. Now again, copy the javascript code that is provided below and paste it into your script.js file.

//Selecting the eye div
let eye_ref = document.querySelectorAll(".eye");

//mousemove for devices with mouse aand touchmove for touchcreen devices
let events = ["mousemove", "touchmove"];

//Check for touch screen
function isTouchDevice() {
  try {
    return true;
  } catch (e) {
    return false;

//Same function for both events
events.forEach((eventType) => {
  document.body.addEventListener(eventType, (event) => {
    eye_ref.forEach((eye) => {
      /* getBoundingClientRect() method returns the position relative to the viewport */
      let eyeX = eye.getBoundingClientRect().left + eye.clientWidth / 2;
      let eyeY = eye.getBoundingClientRect().top + eye.clientHeight / 2;

      /* ClientX and ClientY return the position of clients cursor from top left of the screen*/
      var x = !isTouchDevice() ? event.clientX : event.touches[0].clientX;
      var y = !isTouchDevice() ? event.clientY : event.touches[0].clientY;

    Subtract x position of mouse from x position of eye and y position of mouse from y position of eye.
    Use atan2(returns angle in radians)

      let radian = Math.atan2(x - eyeX, y - eyeY);
      //Convert Radians to Degrees
      let rotationDegrees = radian * (180 / Math.PI) * -1 + 180;
      //Rotate the eye = "rotate(" + rotationDegrees + "deg)";
