Can you get a lazy eye from being too tired or sleepy?

In brief: Amblyopia

The opposite is usually true in that the lazy eye manifests itself during periods of tiredness as some effort needs be expended to maintain ocular alignment, when glasses are removed or patient's concentration drifts, the wandering off center becomes noticable.
