In brief: Depends

It depends on what type of surgery one had.
Was it for a hemorrhage or retinal detachment? I will guess that the best of outcome in any type of surgery would be slowing the progression of the disease. There may be some improvement in vision, but this is hard to predict, again depending on the condition and the type of surgery and the presence of other comorbidities.
