In brief: No

Amblyopia is corrected by forcing the brain to use the weak eye more (not prune neural connections) -- so make the image sharper or remove double.

In brief: Not really

Eye exercises help to align the eyes in cases of mild strabismus.
If the alignment is sufficiently incorrect then glasses, patching and even surgery may be necessary.
