In brief: No effective therapy

...Has been proven.
Look at this article - http://emedicine.Medscape.Com/article/1151430-treatment i assume there has been a thorough neurologic work-up and trial of a Dopamine agonist. There are some treatments in this article to consider with some benefit by case report.

In brief: Maybe

The brain tissue rarely heals back to normal.
Supeanuclear is fancy word for brain. Now the function of the paralysed nerve can be assisted by other eye muscles. Surgery to correct the deviated eye can be done at times. See an adult strabismus eye surgeon.
