In brief: Probably

Amblyopia therapy is generally most successful at ages 7 and younger. At age 23, visual development is complete and amblyopia is permanent.

In brief: Amblyopia?

If you have amblyopia (commonly called lazy eye) where your vision cannot be corrected to 20/20, then the best thing you can do at this age is protect your good eye, as the amblyopia is no longer treatable.
If what you mean is a turned or crossed eye, then yes it could still be surgically straightened.
