1 doctor agrees
In brief: No
Unless i suppose someone is more prone to accidents because they only have one good eye and therefore poor stereopsis.

In brief: No
Amblyopia is usually caused by crossed or misfocused eyes.
Sometimes of course, the extreme misfocus or crossing is a symptom of a much more serious underlying problem but in general, amblyopia should have no negative influence on lifespan.
