you are above 10 yrs ,occlusion in other eye does not help in improving  vision in amblyopic eye,only pleotics tt along with occlusion in contralateral eye can improve the vision.At the age  of 17 there's no treatment for improving vision if you are having  squint ing eye then only then surgery can be done  for  cosmetic look.
