In brief: Yes to eye muscles
The muscles can be repaired, but the lazy eye vision will not change.

In brief: Yes
If a lazy eye has been present since youth, it can be surgically corrected at age 25 or older. A child who has the procedure may retain straight eyes permanently.
But there is an increased chance in an adult who undergoes the procedure that the eye will turn again.
