Both conditions refer to a misalignment of your eyes. The difference is in which way they deviate. In esotropia, one or both of your eyes point inward toward your nose. In exotropia, one or both eyes point outward toward your ears.

In esotropia, amblyopia (“lazy eye”) is common and may be severe. Amblyopia doesn’t happen as often with exotropia.
