My right eye drifts sometimes. My doctor says it's not amblyopia because it's not severe. Can this be corrected?

In brief: Maybe

It could be a convergence or divergence problem; a neuro-ophthalmologist can diagnose and treat it.

In brief: Maybe

If your eye drifts but otherwise has normal vision then it usually means a threshold weakness in the muscles which align the eyes.
If there is no underlying problem and you are not affected by double vision or cosmetic appearance then there is little to do.
