CIDE DICTIONARY

     Having an eye of a very light gray or whitish color.  Booth.  [1913 Webster]
    " 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]
