In brief: Several possible

Lazy eye is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision.
It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic.

In brief: Go to see eye doctor

You need to see an ophthalmologist for further examination and treatment.
Treatment varies from eye drop or patches to glasses to corrective surgery. Go get yourself checked.
