Wall-eyed definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

WALL-EYED, a. Having white eyes.

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Wall-eyed Wall"-eyed`, a. [Icel. valdeyg[eth]r, or vagleygr; fr. vagl a beam, a beam in the eye (akin to Sw. vagel a roost, a perch, a sty in the eye) + eygr having eyes (from auga eye). See Eye.] Having an eye of a very light gray or whitish color. --Booth. Note: Shakespeare, in using wall-eyed as a term of reproach (as ``wall-eyed rage,'' a ``wall-eyed wretch''), alludes probably to the idea of unnatural or distorted vision. See the Note under Wall-eye. It is an eye which is utterly and incurably perverted, an eye that knows no pity.
