I have a severely lazy eye. It goes outward, and almost never works with the other -- even with glasses and contacts. Due to how severe it is, surgery would not do much good. Besides, surgery is not something I can afford at the current time. So, I'm pretty much stuck with it.
I feel like it really hinders my social life, especially in the dating sense. After all, eye contact is so important, and I can't really make it.

I have a lazy eye too!
Its my left eye. Because the muscle is weaker, when I try to focus, it has to turn in to focus so a lot of times eye contact may make me feel uncomfortable because my eye doesn't always cooporate.
I have never gotten any complaints relating to it. I can't prevent it, and if anyone asked about it, I would just be matter of fact about it. It doesn't mean I don't get insecure, it just means that I've gotta work with it sometimes. Sometimes my eye cooporates, and sometimes it doesnt.
