In brief: Yes

Strabismus surgery attempts to straighten the eyes by changing the points of attachment of the extra ocular muscles.
The brain ultimately controls the eye muscles and helps to align them. Strabismus surgery will help align the eyes but over time there is a risk that the brain will still have difficulty maintaining alignment. Patients have the risk of more than one surgery over their lifetime.
