Depends on age: And underlying cause of the "lazy eye" if by "lazy eye" you mean an eye that is not straight, some types can be compensated with glasses at a young age. If "lazy eye" means an eye that never developed normally and has poor vision (amblyopia), then -- no-- no spectacle will fix it.

Probably not: Lazy eye is a non-specific term. It can mean amblyopia, ptosis or strabismis. None of these conditions can be corrected with glasses in adults.
