In brief: Depends

The level of vision your son is capable of will depend on the severity of the cataracts and the age at which they were removed.
You should consult an eye doctor specializing in pediatrics in order to monitor his vision.

In brief: Not sure

Rapid diagnosis and treatment of congenital eye problems usually, hopefully avoid long term issues.
Unfortunately, i cannot tell you for sure whether he has goo vision or not without examining him, of course, proper follow-up, examination & likely glasses/spectacle correction should be done.
