hi dear ,
seeing your daughter's age which is 20 now
there is near to nil chances of improvement
congenital cataract interfering significantly with vision should be operated quite early as otherwise there are chances of amblyopia which means reduced vision at higher level

but even thogh if there is any correctable residual or secondary entity why not give a trial in good hope


good luck
