In brief: Depends on age
If the amblyopia is mild and is discovered before a certain age (usually 4-6), it can sometimes be corrected with the use of glasses alone.
If it is more severe, patching and eye exercises may be required. If the amblyopia is present past the teens, it usually cannot be corrected.
