Is it too late to fix my wandering eye or lazy eye? I am an adult.

In brief: Never too late

A wandering eye can usually be improved with strabismus surgery (working on the muscles of the eyeball) at any age.
We would not expect your vision, if poor in the wandering eye and you are an adult, to improve at all. The eyes can usually be made to align better and "look" more normal to others. In adults, sometimes an adjustible suture is used.
