Is it true that glasses, contacts, and surgery won't help with amblyopia?

In brief: For aldults, yes.

If you have amblyopia that is not corrected by around age 7-10, there is no recognized procedure or device that can offer significant visual improvement.
However, amblyopia is almost always treatable if discovered in young children (less than 7).
