Eyes are severely crossed.

I'm 18 and I have amblyopia from strabismus. I'm totally blind in my left eye and its severely crossed inward. When I was younger the eye crossed a lot less. Now it goes all the way in and you only see the white part.

Does anyone else have crossed eyes?

Re:Eyes are severely crossed.

Hey KaraChang, I'm Olivia, 19, and I also have amblyopia in my right eye, my eye is turned outwards. I have been like this since I can remember. Obviously when I was younger I didn't fully grasp the concept of what it meant to be blind from one eye. My family has always treated me equal to my siblings that it wasn't until I was made fun of for my lazy eye that the concept started to sink in. Before I thought I was the only one going through this suffer of not being able to make eye contact with new people. Or having to explain over and over again why it didn't look like I was looking at them. Thanks to the wonderful internet I was able to see that I'm not alone. How has your life been with Amblyopia?
