In brief: Sometimes

Dyslexia reflects the brain's inability to decode written information reliably.
While it is true that some dyslexics have done great things, that does not make it a non-problem. There are techniques such as fastforward that seem to help the brain modify itself and correct certain types of dyslexia. For most, though, effective techniques help the person work around the problem.

In brief: Yes

Curable? Is this even a problem at all? Google, as we all do these days, "famous dyslexics, " and you will find that this "disorder" is not, in any meaningful sense, a problem.

I would say that dyslexia is certainly very treatable if a child is given remediation at an early age. However even when the reading problems are overcome there can be some remaining issues that the child has to deal with.
