Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
No. They do not see normally.
First of all, since both eyes are not working together, they do not have normal depth perception like someone who has both eyes working together. Due to this, for example, they would not be able to experience 3D effects at the movies.
Also, the eye that is pointing off to the side, while it may be able to see, is not used for seeing like you are suggesting. In this case the brain "focuses" on the image seen by the eye looking at the object of interest and "turns off", or ignores, the image from the eye pointing off to the side.
Does this make sense to you?
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)

Thank you Dr. Rick - So, can you think of any reason that someone like this would be able to pass a driving test ?
Also, does this basically mean that an individual with a "wall eye" only has use of one eye for the most part?
Thank you Dr. Rick - So, can you think of any reason that someone like this would be able to pass a driving test ? Why would an adult not have this corrected - Is this condition often not correctable?
