    Yes, taking too much alcohol could lead to amblyopia, also named lazy eyes, because alcohol has active ingredients of alcohol, which will spread quickly into the blood vessels after enters human body. As alcohols is liable to dissolve in water, and water content in the vitreum of inner cavity of our eyeballs reaches 99% and has a great affinity to ethylalcohol, so taking too much alcohol does harm to retina. And after taking plenty of alcohol, the blood circulatiion accelerates, which leads to the conjunctiva hemorrhage. Meanwhile, alcohol would consume plenty of vitamin B. Eyes are prone to manifest cornea conjunctiva dryness, optic nerve inflammation and crystalline lens nubecula due to lack of vitamin B. In addition, depression, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, musical spasms could cause lazy eyes.

    Usually the lazy eyes are happen when you are a child. However, too much alcohol may cause other eye problems. And the lazy eyes may be caused by the long time in the dark room with no light. Thus, the eyes will have no ability to adjust to the strong light outside.

    I have never heard that alcohol will cause lazy eye. The most common cause of lazy eyes are strabismic, strabismic and refractive. The most common cause of lazy eye is strabismus, an imbalance in the muscles responsible for positioning of the eyes. This imbalance can cause the eyes to cross in or turn out. The muscle imbalance prevents the eyes from tracking together in a coordinated way. Deprivation lazy eye occurs if there is a problem with one eye, such as a cloudy area in the lens (cataract). This "deprives" the child of clear vision in the eye. Refractive.This type of lazy eye is the result of a significant difference between the vision in each eye, due to nearsightedness, farsightedness or an imperfection on the surface of the eye (astigmatism). These are the types of vision problems typically corrected by glasses or contact lenses.
