In brief: Very low

Depends on what you mean by visual disturbances! i rarely get complaints of "visual disturbances" after cataract surgery.
Most patients are very happy with their new and improved vision. There can be more glare and light sensitivity compared to the natural lens in a small set of people, but this is usually insignificant.

In brief: Not sure

I am not sure what you are talking about but the risk of visual decrease after cataract surgery is about 1 out of 10, 000.
