Symptoms of lazy eye but vision is normal. What could be going on?

Hello. I have a question about my eyesight. I have 20/20 in my left eye and 20/25 in my right eye, but I have all the symptoms of having lazy eye. Everyone tells me my eye vision should be worse if I have lazy eye, but all of the symptoms are there and frankly they re quite annoying. Any clue on what might be going on?

Lazy eye is also called as Ambylopia. It is because of normal vision in one eye and less than normal vision in the other eye. The visual acuity in the abnormal eye depends on the amount of ambylopia and it may vary from mild to severe. In your case ambylopia is mild.
The treatment for ambylopia depends on the age. The treatment is my occluding the normal eye and using the abnormal eye to stimulate it. This treatment can be tried till the age of 10-12 years and after 12 years the success of treatment may not be seen.
Thank you
