In brief: Understand your risk
Lazy eye,or amblyopia,is the process where your brain turns off the visual input of an eye to your brain.
There are many treatments that can help some, but at a listed age of 39, you may not ever gain any vision back if it has been too long.Surgery might help line up the affected eye but the effect is cosmetic.It would be realistic to explore the cause of your issues and whether anything might help

In brief: Identify problem 1st
Before trying any remedies for amblyopia, it is recommended to see an ophthalmologist who can diagnose the exact cause of amblyopia and suggest appropriate therapy.
After this, then home treatment is highly recommended.
