In brief: Not long
If you eyes are out of alignment and the appearance is disturbing, you can ask your ophthalmologist to re-align them surgically.
The only delay is how long to get the appointment for evaluation, and how long to set up the surgery. This is not always covered by insurance however, so ask about that.
