Possibly: Most likely you mean with lazy that the eyes are not aligned (strabismus), probably from childhood on. If the strabismus gets worse after the age of 10-12 years, you can no longer suppress the image of one eye and you see double. Consult an ophthalmologist to see if strabismus surgery might help.
