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...


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).

  3. I have the same look...one eye looks like it's staring.
    I have Graves Disease (thyroid eye disease)...maybe he does too

  4. Looks like Graves' Disease to me. I also have it.

  5. I up-vote this piece, because it echoes my own inquiring sentiments! ;)

  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.

    1. Well, I think the fact that his "grandfather" was a high level official with the Atomic Energy Commission who supervised the Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore laboratories.who raised him was a head at los alamos labs is a pretty odd coincidence. Was he genetically modified? We will likely never know, but we do know that his exposure to the kind of technology which was researched in Los Alamos gives him a huge advantage over his competition.

  8. I'm in the middle of reading "The Everything Store" and in it Bezos is often characterized as being impulsive and irritable, which could be caused by many things but also happen to be symptomatic of Graves' disease. I'm inclined to say, after learning more about his personality, that an overactive thyroid seems the most likely cause of his bulging eye.

  9. He probably just has a lazy eye condition due to better eyesight on the other eye. Every person in the world has one dominant eye. This means that the brain will use the dominant eye much more. this results in the other eye becoming a backup eye and there is only used, when e.g. driving a car or in the need of viewing a blindspot that side. For some people like Jeff Bezo and me a slight difference in eyesight can do this.

  10. He's been droned (body-snatched) by a lizard creature called Vril. They live underground and kept secret by the 'Illuminati'. Call them Aliens or whatever but they are terrestrial. Either that or his consciousness has been replaced with another persons which has been recorded on a chip and inserted deep behind the eye.

    This may seem far-fetched but it's all true and all you have to do is research for yourself and just take a look at the world.

    He explains about VRIL and many other things like HUMAN CLONING and CONSCIOUSNESS TRANSFER whilst in R.E.M sleep.

    This isn't something you can afford not to research into!

  11. His left eye is normal compared to mine.

  12. Seen this in a number of people who regularly appear on TV thus i often wonder. He is my most recent. There is even a BBC American reporter who is actualy completely blind - gutsy fellow !

    1. A blind BBC reporter? Bloody hell...

      "What's going on, Steve?"

      "I've got absolutely no idea, Ken."

      "Why is that, Steve?"

      "Well, I am blind as a bat Ken."

      "I see. Anything of value you can tell us at all, Steve?"

      "Not really, Ken. It's cold here. I really... I have absolutely no idea where they've driven me this time."

      "All right... Pam with weather"

  13. At first I thought he had a prosthetic eye and that he was also Greek judging by his surname.
    After looking more into it, I found out he was born in Mexico and also that he might have had a syndrome which causes the eyes to become more "popping out" cause of thyroid problems.
    One thing that makes me skeptic is, that not many results come up on Google about this, I dont know if he has tampered with them or removed pages mentioning it.
