wall-eyed

A simple way to describe eyes that turn outward.  This term isn’t really used in medicine, but is very descriptive. We would usually describe a wall-eyed person as having an exotropia.  The opposite would be cross-eyed (esotropia).  Ocular alignment problems like this are called strabismus. New cases of strabismus need to be evaluated by an eye doctor.
