No: Lazy eye can refer to eyes not aligned properly, then there may be a muscle weakness or cranial nerve palsy involved, stroke, etc. And this should be check out right away. When eyes get tired, a decompensation of an underlying phoria can happen with eyes drifting out. Lazy eye in amblyopia doesn't happen for a short time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Continue to use your eyes as they are now and don't worry about the other eye. ...Read more

Only a proper evaluation could be sure. ...Read more
Surgery may be it: An eye that's mis-aligned, in an adult, can be cosmetically distracting. Even if vision can't be improved, surgery to straighten the eye often does help.
