In brief: Yes

It depends on how dense the cataract is and whether it is in one eye or both.
Good vision can be achieved in most cases. Most kids with congenital cataracts can lead a normal life even if the vision is not 100% normal.

In brief: Yes

Depends on how much the cataract affects the vision, then possibly surgery can correct the problem and live a normal life.
