In brief: See an Eye MD

Very unusual for "lazy eye" to begin as an adult.
See your eye md asap.

In brief: See an eye doctor...

Specifically, an ophthalmologist.
Since a "lazy eye" on occasion needs surgical intervention it is best to skip an optometrist (those you see in strip malls) and go straight to an md/do eye doctor. Best of luck.
