In brief: Eye exam by Eye MD

A lazy eye is diagnosed when everything else that can cause less than corrected 20/20 vision has been ruled out.
The diagnosis is made easier in the presence of misaligned eyes (strabismus) or moderate farsightedness, or advanced astigmatism.

In brief: An eye exam

You may feel a problem or see blur in your eye.
The only definitive way of identifying a true problem and amblyopia is with a complete eye exam by your ophthalmologist.
