In brief: Depends

Strabismus surgery is not an exact science.
Aligning the eye muscles so that the two eyes are perfectly aligned can be difficult and sometimes impossible. The success of surgery depends on the cause of the strabismus (childhood, trauma, thyroid disease). Sometimes more than one surgery is required. The goal is to have realistic expectations going into surgery.
