How to politely converse with a person who has a lazy eye?
posted by anonymous to Human Relations (19 answers total)
My new job will put me in a situation in which I will have many close conversations with a person who has a very lazy eye. That person is warm, friendly, and enjoyable to be around and will have a supervisory role over my work to some degree.
Up until now I've been trying to focus on the non-lazy eye but I find that I focus pretty intensely on it. I believe I normally focus alternately on the whole head and both of people's eyes. I've tried focusing on the whole head, but my gaze inevitably drifts towards the lazy eye.
Anybody out there have any tips from first- or second-hand experience? And, if first-hand, what is it like to have a lazy eye?
