• Why does one of my eyes cross only when I wear contacts or glasses?


    Question:

    Why does one of my eyes cross only when I wear contacts or glasses?


    Answer:

    This is the opposite of what usually happens in which crossed eyes are corrected by contacts or glasses. Perhaps when uncorrected, one of your eyes gets out of alignment and vision is suppressed so you are unaware of the crossing at that time. When you correct the vision, you then become aware of the difference in vision between each eye and then you notice the crossing.
