How can you get rid of a lazy eye or make it not as noticeable?

In brief: 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. The underlying cause must be determined, & that list is extensive. In a child (younger than 8 or 9 yrs or so) a pediatric ophthalmologist should be consulted to try to recover vision.
