I've always wondered whether I have a lazy eye or not. How can I tell the difference?

In brief: Eye exam

Lazy eye can be drifting out or in, or sometimes is aligned but has a weaker visual acuity potential than 20/20 (thus can't be corrected to 20/20).

In brief: Eye exam.

If you are worried if you have amblyopia, this can be easily detected by a simple eye exam.
Your vision should be 20/20 in each eye with best correction.
