    For I know that there is no evidence show that there is any connection between wear contact lenses and lazy eyes. But you’d better do not wear contact lenses if you get lazy eyes, an eye doctor told me that wear contact lenses can make lazy eyes become worse. And you'd better ask your doctor for further suggestion.

    I saw it online somewhere that said wearing illegal contact lenses can cause lazy eyes. And to treat it, the best way is to stop wearing your contact lenses. And go back to your optometrist. He can help you to fix it. I heard that there are special contact lenses that can fix lazy eyes. Anyway, you shall be cautions if you want to wear contact lenses.
