WHAT IS A STRABISMUS?

If a person suffers from strabismus, one eye looks directly at the object being viewed and the other eye is misaligned.

You can look in (esotropia, ‘squint’ or ‘squint’), out (exotropia or ‘squint’), up (hypertropia), or down (hypotropia).

Strabismus can be constant or intermittent.

About one in 20 children has a strabismus or squint, but exotropia is much less common.

Strabismuses usually develop during the first three years of life, but can appear later.

It is often detected in early childhood, sometimes within weeks of the baby’s birth.

Many historical painters suffered from the condition, including: Pablo Picasso, Edgar Degas, and Rembrandt.

Lady Louise Windsor is also believed to have the condition.

However, Elley explained how she learned to deal with it, saying, “The comments still bothered me, but I got better at hiding it by laughing with them and taking the joke further, that way they could be right in my face without hurting me, because I I laughed with them, and that continued through high school too.’

She started making TikTok videos for fun because she “liked to dance and lip sync.”

She said she didn’t expect to have a large following until she posted a video of herself doing a makeup tutorial.

It quickly racked up thousands of views and Elley gained 470,000 followers on the platform.
