    Yes, a stroke may cause a lazy eye. After a person has been struck by a stroke, it is likely that one side of his body including the arm, leg, trunk and the face will be paralyzed. That's what is called hemiplegia. When a person suffers from hemiplegia, one side of his body is obviously weaker than the other side. As a result, the eye on this side become a lazy one.
