Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye is the result of weak muscles in one eye that allow it to drift inward. The best way to strengthen the muscles in that eye, is to put an eye patch (which you can find at most pharmacies) over the GOOD eye. Any kind of muscle exercise will help the lazy eye straighten out.
In case of failure, corrective surgery is an option.
