Slang. verb

To stare intensely in a menacing or uninvited manner.

Ex. Shit, I think EDB is eyeballing me...

Eyeball is also a transitive verb meaning "To estimate a measurement by sight". For example, if you were cooking and didn't want to bother with measuring cups, you could just eyeball the amount of an ingredient. Or I was in a math class and we were supposed to be drawing angles. The teacher told us being precise wasn't a big deal and if we didn't have a protractor handy we could eyeball it.

Eye"ball` (?), n.

The ball or globe of the eye.
