Clicky for an animated (!) diary caption.
Strabismus is also called lazy eye, but there are a lot of conditions called lazy eye. Strabismus appears to be the most precise term
In my normal body, I have... had?... a condition called ptosis... which, incidentally, is one of the other conditions people refer to as lazy eye. With ptosis, one or both of your upper eyelids sag. For me, it was my right eyelid. If you look very closely at pictures of me in my normal body, the brunette one, you'll notice that my left eye sometimes opens wider than my right eye.
Well, actually, I guess you won't notice it if you're one of the people who sees me as a blonde woman in my old captions. Kristen Bell, as far as I know, doesn't have ptosis.
My ptosis was very subtle; I think I'm the only person who's ever noticed it, though when I point it out to people, they can see it. When I was in my teens and early twenties, I would draw pictures of myself as a woman, trying to imagine what I would look like. I studied my face very, very closely for those pseudo-self-portraits, and that was when I first realized there was something wonky with my right eye.
This eye, man. I've had four separate bodies now--my male and female selves, Jennifer Aniston, and now Kristen Bell--and I've had problems with my right eye in three of them.
Bodies are so weird.
