Hi, Already you have undergone a surgery , lazy eye treatment for adults is effective especially when motivation and commitment are strong. mild misalignment due to convergence insufficiency (where the eyes have difficulty turning in to focus on close objects) can be corrected with eye muscle exercises. These eye exercises include pencil push-ups and computer vision therapy.So I don't advice for another surgery ,you need to exercise eye muscles repeatedly.
