Suggest treatment for congenital cataract

Hi I am a 17 year-old suffering from congenital cataract since I was born. I had an operation to my left eye when I was 1 year old and in the following 15 years I was able to see shapes and colours...however, in the last 2 years I am not able to see anything anymore, therefore, I would like to know whether there is any way for me to come out of this situation through surgery or any other medical treatments.Thank you very much.
