Can myopia in one eye cause a slight sleepy eye, like a misalignment of one eye compared to the other? If yes, can glasses, and so on fix it?

Relative fixes: A 20 year old is beyond the age of visual system plasticity, generally ending around 8 years old.

I would not recommend surgery as it has risks and is not needed in your situation as your breast size is only slightly different. Again, this is normal and nothing to worry about. ...Read more
