How successful is a cataract surgery in restoring vision?

I have recently had surgery for cataracts 4 days ago, no improvement thus far. The Dr. said he only got 90% of the cataract, this is after having a cornea transplant in Aug.,2013. He said he can laser the other 10% in 2 wks, what is the probablity of my vision returning? Very concerned.
