Is It Possible To Completely Roll Your Eyes
Yes: We call this a tropia with the eyes turned in or out permanently. This is mostly from childhood issues but can result from a breakdown of childhood patterns by adult trauma or by injury to the eye muscles, nerves and tissue in the eye socket. In adults this usually creates intractable doubling of vision, but children undergo supression of one eye so doubling does not occur. ...Read more
Maybe: Crossed eyes are known as strabismus. There are many criteria which need to be examined in order to determine how strabismus is best corrected. In some cases, certain eye excercises can minimize and even eliminate strabismus, in others, surgical correction is necessary.

The tip of the cone points back toward the brain and has a hole that is much smaller than the eyeball. Also, the eye is tethered in place by muscles, so it cannot fall into the head. Trauma to the face can break the bones in the floor of the orbit and the eye can sink down a little, but it cannot fall back. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See your eye doctor: This depends on whether your eyes can't open because you have to ptotic lids, which are droopy eyelids that don't lift up beyond what you can see through your pupil. Or if it's due through constant contraction of your orbicularis muscles of your upper and lower eyelids, called blepharospasm. Both are treatable eye conditions.
