If you have amblyopia, is there a surgery to correct the lazy eye?

No. Amblyopia (lazy eye) develops when one eye is not used early in life. This is usually due to not using both eyes together due to eye position (ie. Crossed), or amount of eyeglass correction. If not caught early in life the brain does not make the proper connections to see well out of that eye. If the amblyopia is due to eye position eye muscle surgery at a young age may help.
Only in childhood. It depends on what is meant with "lazy eye". In adults reduced vision due to amblyopia unfortunately can not be "fixed". This can only be done in early childhood, usually by patching and glasses. If the eye deviates, surgery can be done at any age.

Yes but.... Binocular vision is usually established by the age of 18 months. After that age surgery has only a cosmetic value. Read more...
Yes and no. Lazy eye, or amblyopia is a condition where the brain begins turning off one eye because the image is different/fuzzy. It may be improved by non-surgical means if the eyes line up correctly, but it often leads to cross eyes. Surgery can help re-align the eyes as part of treatment, but if the problem has gone on too long, the amblyopia can persist. At that point, surgery's value is cosmetic. Read more...

Lazy eye. Usually not unless there is a significant eye muscle problem associated with it. Read more...
Hard to say. If your lazy eye (poor vision or lack of vision) has gone on long enough, a drifting eye may becomes a symptom, rather than the cause, since the eye is not kept on target by the brain. The longer your brain ignores the weaker eye, the more risk vision will never be recovered.At that point surgery is just cosmetic.Review the issue with the eye surgeon. Read more...

Is there a surgery to fix a lazy eye?

Yes. If a "lazy eye" is due to eye alignment then eye muscle surgery to help align the eyes better can improve amblyopia. Often the better seeing eye needs to be patched as well to force the weaker eye to develop. Read more...
Yes. Eyes can be aligned with muscle surgery, but it's an estimation based on tables so it's not always completely on target and works better for larger deviations. Read more...

Yes-misaligned eye. If the eye is wandering or crossed, surgery may help. Surgery will not fix amblyopia (lazy eye) which is poor vision in one eye--surgery only puts the eyes back into their "normal" anatomic position. Even when the eyes are straightened, they still may not work together. A detailed examination with a strabismus surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for surgery. Read more...

How do I fix lazy eye without surgery?

Patching or glasses. In certain specific types of lazy eye, patching and glasses may work. Ask your eye doctor. Read more...

Is surgery the best way to fix a lazy eye?

Yes and no. If you are refering to lining the eyes up so they point in the same direction, that might be possible with a skilled eye muscle surgery. The other issue is will it work. If the brain decided to shut off the input from that eye(ambliopia), the ability to regain that lost input deminishes with time. A discussion with your eye dr can give you guidance. Read more...

Is there anyway to cure a lazy eye with surgery?

Yes and no. A lazy eye is a term that is commonly used for two different things. The first is amblyopia which is poor vision due to a poor connection with the brain. The second is strabismus which is an eye turn. It is possible to have both conditions. Surgical correction is avaible for strabismus. Surgical correction can slightly improve the vision in amblyopia sometimes but not always. Read more...

Is it possible to get surgery to fix a lazy eye?

Rx May help. Lazy eye is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. Read more...
