I am a 31 year old female. I will be 32 in Aug. I just had an eye exam yesterday, and the Dr asked me if I have ever had problems with a lazy eye before. I have never had any issues in the past. I have been wearing glasses since I was 12 years old and have was getting annual exams until I was 21 and then I have only missed a couple of years since then. I have been keeping up with my eyes. There are a lot of vision problems on both sides of my family. But I haven't heard of anyone having lazy eye.
So onto my question. What can cause lazy eye later in life?

I was diagnosed with Lazy Eye (strabismus) when I was 5 years old. I wore a patch and did eye exercises. Lazy eye is caused by a weak eye muscle. You would do well to seek opinions from additional eye doctors. Do not go to an optomistrist. Go see a strabismus specialist. Those types of doctors tend to work with Universities and are on the cutting edge of technology. Best wishes.

i was born with a really bad lazy eye, my eye was turned all teh way towards my nose. I wore a eye patch on my good eye for a year when i was 2 years old and it did nothing. i had glasses- they made it worse.
I now have 20/200 vision , no lazy eye though. i started doing exercises with my eye and using it even if i couldn't see,
