In brief: Yes

Large eye deviations can be treated successfully by moving the muscle insertion in order to line up the eye close to primary position (tables estimate how much to move the muscle by).

In brief: Yes

This type of surgery called adult strabismus repair is done frequently.
The goal is not to improve vision (although it may) but is rather to improve physicial appearance for psychosocial reasons. Be sure to have your surgery done by an ophthalmologist experienced in adult strabismus.
