• Alternating Esotropia


    Question:

    I can only see out of one eye at a time but can quickly switch so it is not noticeable even to me. What is that called?


    Answer:

    You probably have what is known as alternating esotropia—a lazy eye condition which will let you fixate with either eye, but not at the same time. I would consult with a muscle specialist (usually a pediatric ophthalmologist) to see if surgery can help you fuse the image of both eyes.
