How can impaired vision after a cataract surgery be treated?

I had cataract surgery about 5 or more years ago. My vision never seemed to improve after the surgery. Example at night I can not see to my left or right when I make turns. I can very easily go over a curb when making turns. I also have type 1 diabetics and am 74 years of age. Anything I can do?
