In brief: Maybe

Therapy for amblyopia depends greatly on your age.
If you are a child less than 7-8 years of age there is good potential for permanent visual improvement. Older than this, therapeutic benefits decline but may still be attained up through the teenage years. Of course, getting the best glasses or contact lenses can help as well.

In brief: Strabismus

Many people refer to crossed eyes as a lazy eye as well.
It is possible to use prisms to make the image come together with the two eyes working together if it is not severe.
