Can wearing an eye patch on a "good" eye cause vision damage, or make the covered eye lazy?

In brief: Amblyopia

The treatment for a lazy (amblyopic) eye is to patch the good eye in a controlled manner. Sometimes the amblyopia can switch but the vision is recoverable.
That is why it needs to be done in a controlled manner.
