In brief: Eye misalignment
Exotropia is the condition, usually from childhood, in which one eye looks laterally when the other looks straight ahead.
It is usually accompanied by lowered vision in the outturning eye. I an adult eye is damaged and loses the visual ability to maintain alignment it may also turn out. The opposite of this is esotropia; eyes turning inwards.
