1 definition found:



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. [1913 Webster]

     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. [1913 Webster]
