A 48-year-old member asked:

Is it possible to have wandering eye in both?

Possibly: The most common 'wandering eye' is when vision is down in one eye and it cannot hold fixation and moves in or out compared to the other eye. There is a condition called alternation in which either eye can achieve fixation while the other snaps out or in. If there is poor vision in both eyes, they can wander in a random pattern termed nystagmus.
