WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH JEFF BEZOS' EYE?

Wonky.


Come on -- we're all thinking it.   Jeff Bezos is the founder, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Amazon.com.  By all accounts, the man is a genius ten times over.  Still -- the eye.  It bugs me.  There's something going on with that eye and no one ever brings it up. 



Less wonky, but still...

Bezos founded the company in 1994 after making a cross country drive from New York to Seattle, writing up the Amazon business plan while on the way.  Amazing.   Still -- the eye.  CREEPY.

There's glass in them thar hills, er maybe...
Lazy eye?   You decide.



His wikipedia entry does not mention a fluke accident or stroke.  It does however say that he tried to dismantle his crib with a screwdriver when he was just a toddler.

A simple Google research of the phrase JEFF BEZOS WONKY EYE returned a number of articles and web results, but none of them explained the problem with his eye.   There was a vague mention of a "lazy eye" by someone, but that was less than conclusive.  My favorite search result asked...

DOES JEFF BISOS HAVE A GLASS EYE?

We may never know.

  1. It could be ptosis. Actor Forest Whitaker has that condition

  2. Bells Palsy? (a side effect of other common conditions, like Lyme disease).

  6. It is much more than a lazy eye. The pupil seems to be larger in the left eye, the left eye appears to protrude more and it does not track smoothly with the right eye. If it is not an artificial eye, it appears to be a non-functioning eye. It would be nice, just to know why.

  7. Much conjecture here about his eye, but not much real information if you try to search about his eye. He runs a massive company so his health really is a public concern. There was a great deal written about Steve Jobs health, and even about Larry Page having some sort of problem with his vocal chords I believe it is.
