Do eye exercises really help vision correction?

In brief: No

eye exercises do not have a place in changing ones refractive error.
This is a ruse practiced by some optometrists. Eye exercises, however, are useful in the treatment of some issues regarding accommodation and strabismus.

In brief: Depends

Depends on how you define vision.
Certain eye exercises can help one's ability to use the two eyes together and to improve the eye's focusing system. No eye exercises can improve visual acuity (your ability to resolve detail).
