In brief: Unlikely to matter

When using the "cortical" in visual defect the origin of the problem is in the brain receptor at the back of the brain.
If you think of a camera sending a signal to a monitor, nothing you do to the camera will change the fact that the monitor is broken. Lasik or laser eye surgery is an effort to improve the bodies cameras.
