Puzzling assumption: Vision worsening because of wandering eye is expected, but often the wondering is triggered by other eye or eye muscle issues. If alignment cannot be maintained the brain will deny input from one eye=amblyopia. Get the best evaluation by an ophthalmologist you can and hope for the best.
