In brief: It can be
Many cases of amblyopia are due to differences in refraction between the eyes or grossly out of focus eyes.
Sometimes, it is caused by farsightedness and a common complaint is variable focus. Getting a careful refraction for glasses can go a long ways towards comfort.

In brief: See an eye doctor
A lazy eye may still see somewhat well, and if not dealt with, can cause the vision in both eyes to seem difficult.
Additionally, since only one eye is doing most of the work, if it is not completely in focus (for example, if you need a new prescription for glasses or contacts), you may notice it very easily. Have your eyes examined and discuss options available to decrease these symptoms.
