Baby congenital bilateral cataracts

My son is 10 months. Here is his history.
Congenital bilateral cataract removed. New lens inserted.
Thick scar tissue formed over the lens both eyes, affecting sight.
Removed scar tissue in left eye. now there is no vision.
Now has developed ambylopia in left eye.
There is some vision in the right eye.
What is the risk if i do not get the scar tissue removed?
Should i remove the scar tissue in the right eye?
Thank you
Chassie

Vision will not improve if the scar is causing a decrease in vision. Yes.  If no sure get a second opinion.
