Sasuke is one of the main characters of Masashi Kishimoto"s Naruto series and also among the strongest shinobi to exist in the story. Being an Uchiha, he is blessed with the visual prowess of Indra Otsutsuki and his descendants, which gave him a clear advantage in most battles.

Over the years, Sasuke has gained multiple eye powers, from Sharingan to Rinnegan, all of which makes him an even greater force to be reckoned with. Being the reincarnation of Indra, his control over these eyes is immaculate and he has a wide range of which he"s mastered with different eyes over the years.
Sasuke Uchiha is a member of the Uchiha clan and thus, possesses the visual Kekkei Genkai known as the Sharingan. This eye is incredibly powerful and allows a user to read the movements of others better. It also lets the users copy the techniques of others, although it takes quite some time to master them.
One Tomoe Sharingan is the weakest eye of the Uchiha Clan in the series and although it"s a decent power-up, it only unlocks a fraction of what this eye is truly capable of. Sasuke Uchiha unlocked this eye during the Uchiha clan massacre, however, the trauma made him forget that he ever unlocked it, to begin with. During the Land of Waves arc, Sasuke re-awakened this power for the first time since that incident.
This form of the Sharingan is an evolution of the eye with a single tomoe and is much stronger than it. Expectedly, it grants the user all the powers that the first Sharingan does but it does so in a much better way. The movements that a user of the two tomoe Sharingan can read are much more refined and precise and thus, it helps them react to dangers much better.

This eye can also copy any form of ninjutsu, genjutsu, and taijutsu as long as they"re not Kekkei Genkai or Hiden techniques. Sasuke gained this eye during the Land of Waves arc and with time and it allowed him to read the movements of characters such as Rock Lee, copy them, and use them in battle. Later, this eye evolved into a fully matured Sharingan.
A Sharingan is known to mature completely when the user awakens all three tomoe in the eye. This is the strongest form of the regular Sharingan and an Uchiha with this eye can see to a much greater extent when compared to others. Sasuke awakened this eye during his fight against Naruto at the Valley of the End. After awakening this eye, he was able to keep track of the movements of Naruto in his One-Tailed Cloak, something that he couldn"t do before that.
This eye can also be used to cast powerful genjutsu, and as with all the other versions of the Sharingan, it can see through all ninjutsu, genjutsu, and taijutsu. While there are limits to it, a great user of the Sharingan can even surpass someone with an eye stronger than it with training.
3 Mangekyo Sharingan
The Mangekyo Sharingan is one of the most powerful Kekkei Genkai in the Naruto series. It is an evolutionary form of the Sharingan and can only be awakened once an Uchiha undergoes the trauma caused by the death of someone very close to them. This power was first introduced to the fans with Itachi Uchiha before the time-skip in the story.
Sasuke Uchiha acquired this power after fighting against his brother and emerging victorious. Learning the truth from Obito made him trigger the awakening of the Mangekyo Sharingan. His Mangekyo Sharingan has the power to use Amaterasu from one eye and control the black flames using the other one. A third power, known as the Susanoo, is also available to the Mangekyo Sharingan users and naturally, Sasuke is no exception to that.
One of the biggest downsides of the Mangekyo Sharingan is that it causes the user to lose sight in their eyes with excessive usage. To counter this, the eyes of a blood relative, preferably a sibling, can be transplanted. Madara Uchiha was the first person to do this and he gained the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan by transplanting the eyes of his dying brother.

After overusing his Mangekyo Sharingan, Sasuke Uchiha decided to make his eyes eternal by transplanting the eyes of Itachi Uchiha. The Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan is the highest form of the eye in the series and it allows for all the powers of the Sharingan to be used at a much larger scale.
After meeting the Sage of Six Paths, Sasuke Uchiha was gifted half his power, with Naruto Uzumaki being given the other half. As a result, Sasuke"s left Mangekyo Sharingan became a Rinnegan. This eye is known to be the strongest of all the Three Great Dojutsu in the Naruto world and it grants Six Paths powers to the user.
