In brief: Probably not
However if you discover it very early (earlier the better) and correct the images so that the brain "sees" clear images in both eyes equally, then there is a chance for normal visual pathway development.

In brief: Probably not
If you are a child outside of the optimal treatment age of less than 7 years or so then you will unlikely have perfect vision.
With treatment of children, 20/20 vision is possible but usually stereovision is affected. In older patients, treatment may still be effective although the outcomes are as dramatic.
