Sometimes - but generally for strabismus (the condition usually causing what you are describing) an Ophthalmologist would be the one to go to, because sometimes this takes surgery on the muscles, not just glasses. Or a Pedriatric Ophthalmologist if this is a condition with a child - crossed eyes and lazy eye are usually first diagnosed and treated in children.


(Optomotrist is a "vision" doctor, primarily using lenses to correct vision, with limited eye prescription use. An Ophthalmologist is an "eye" doctor - dealing with conditions of the eyes and diseases).
