If an adult has a lazy eye, is it true that their affected eye will drift outwards over time?

In brief: Often

A lazy eye in an adult will most often tend to drift outward, but it may remain straight, or turn inward, depending on the nature of the underlying disease.
There are no hard and fast rules on this one.
