One week after cataract surgery I have 20-30 vision. What is the possibility that it will improve further in time?
It depends on the underlying condition of your eye. It is possible to have 20/20 vision or even better after cataract surgery (removal of the eye’s cloudy lens) but certainly not guaranteed.
