  • Visual Disorders By: Lexi Lucas
  • Types of Visual Disorders • Strabismus • Lazy Eye • Astigmatism • Cataracts
  • Strabismus This condition creates two different images, one from each eye, because the eyes do not point in the same direction.
  • Lazy Eye Usually in children, vision does not properly develop in one eye. As a child grows up, improper vision becomes permanent because of the maturation of the brain.
  • Astigmatism Due to a formation made in the cornea, vision is blurry. It occurs from any and every distance.
  • Cataracts People over the age of 40, the eye becomes clouded around the area of the pupil.
  • Celebrities with Visual Disorders How life is different
  • Paris Hilton – Strabismus “Rumor has it that it's a result of a botched eye lift surgery and Paris' excessive use of colored contact lenses (her natural eye color is brown) is only making her drooping eyelid worse.”- Become Gorgeous Online Magazine
  • Melissa Joan Hart- Lazy eye “Has a lazy eyelid that causes her right eye not to open as wide as her left eye.”- IMBD
