Will I probably need surgery to correct a lazy eye?

In brief: Hard to say
If your lazy eye (poor vision or lack of vision) has gone on long enough, a drifting eye may becomes a symptom, rather than the cause, since the eye is not kept on target by the brain.
The longer your brain ignores the weaker eye, the more risk vision will never be recovered.At that point surgery is just cosmetic.Review the issue with the eye surgeon.

In brief: Lazy eye
Usually not unless there is a significant eye muscle problem associated with it.
